This full bodied Shiraz is deep garnet in colour with floral aromas, hints of white pepper, spice, ending with a savory note on the nose. It has a firm structure, with lots of ripe berry and cherry notes and great freshness to the finish. A savoury aftertaste, leaving you longing for more.
This wine will continue to develop into more savoury and spicy flavours and will reward cellaring up to 7 years.
Ideal partner to
fillet au poivre and beef bourguignonne - in fact all red meats grilled over open flames.
