Deep ruby red, almost black in colour. Expressive aromas of blackcurrant, plums, pencil shavings and spicy toasted oak on the nose. On the palate, the blackcurrant and plum flavours persist, backed and well complemented by the toasty oak flavours from 26 months’ new oak aging. The tannins are sumptuous, making this is a well-rounded wine which is showing beautifully now in its youth, but which has the structure and fruit to mature for a good 10 years plus.
This wine will pair beautifully with rare roast beef, lamb and more complex dishes of feathered game.
