This wine shows inviting aromas of juicy black fruit, mulberries, plums and hints of warm spice. After spending 18 months in barrel, the palate is soft and juicy with well rounded tannins and a long, delicious finish.

Maturation

Great now, and will improve for 4 years.

Food Pairing

Particularly good with light and medium flavoured meals, such as pizza and braai.
