Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) Plums, aniseed and spice are the hallmarks of this exotic wine. The supple palate is rich with jaffa-like, briary flavours balanced by fine powdery tannins and well-integrated spicy oak. A wine to be enjoyed over the next six years.cinnamon and plum characters are in perfect harmony. The lush mid-palate, filled with crushed black pepper, currant and blackberry, is complemented by well balanced tannins. This wine will complement roast lamb and beef, all barbecued meats, some game dishes.
