Description

Black-fruit medley aromas with a beautifully integrated vanillin oak framework. A refreshing medium bodied palate dominated by blackcurrants and dark cherries. A soft mouth feel with a clean finish, displaying velvety tannins.

Excellent as an aperitif or with a rich dessert, and a favourite with the Christmas ham or turkey. Serve chilled.

This wine develops with age.
