Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) COLOUR - Deep ruby red, intense and brilliant. NOSE - Cloves, sandalwood, fresh cassis berries. PALATE: Ripe tannin, clean intense fruit, black berries. Taste holds in the mouth with excellent balance. This wine follows the "classic” style blends that we have been making from our first vintage in 1989. A soft, rich wine with fruit forward character. It is ideal to drink now with rich food and red meat dishes. The classic tannin structure will allow the wine to mature well for up to ten years.
