Tasting Notes

Crushed pepper, smoke, toasty oak and roasting spices dance around a core of dark fruit. This wine packs a lot of punch at the price, delivering a full flavoured palate with intense fruit and spice wrapped in firm, but well-rounded tannins and a lingering savoury finish.

Food Pairing

Try it with chorizo and bean risotto, grilled venison, or even peri-peri chicken.
