The wine has a vibrant ruby red colour with a dash of purple.
The nose is refined opulence personified. Bright violets are infused with dark fruit with just a hint of earth and wood smoke. Sweet spices abound, rich in cloves, subtle nutmeg and aromatic coriander.
The palate is alive with redberry fruit and has a chocolaty richness with undertones of wild herbs.
The wine has a full, viscous texture and a lingering finish.
Well paired with a de-boned leg of lamb, barbequed over hot coals or hearty, slow-cooked pork belly with root vegetables and tomatoes.
