Lovely, ruby-red colour. This wine has an intense bouquet, featuring red- (strawberries) and black-berry fruit (blackcurrant), with hints of spices. It is soft on the palate, with good backbone and balance, as well as velvety tannins. Long aftertaste with hints of spices.
Best enjoyed at 16°C as an accompaniment to delicatessen meats, red meat dishes (skirt-steak with shallots), roast white meats (grilled chicken), hard cheeses, or oriental cuisine.
