Alluring plush black fruits, earthy notes and pencil shavings followed by a layered complexity. The smooth, silky texture sustains spice, tea leaves nuances and dark chocolate. This multi-dimensional wine would provide the ultimate pairing with beef sirloin combined with roasted beetroot. The silky tannins would also combine well with lean game meats in dishes that are not overtly spicy but rather aromatic in nature.
Matured for 16 months in 225 litre French oak barrels. The wine has an ageing potential of at least 7 years from vintage.
Alcohol: 13.5% vol
