Power with elegance, modern and delicious ... Intense Shiraz fruit. You won’t be able to resist the generous dark chocolate, roasted coffee and mulberry fruit with lots of spicy flavours. Ripe fine grained tannins. Impressive length.

Perhaps best partnership achieved with suitable game / red meat dishes.
