Ideal food matches are game, red meat dishes and hard cheeses. This wine holds attractive fruit aromas of raspberry and plum andsubtle liquorice and sweet spices are combined with sweet vanillin and light cedary oak tones combination of dark berry fruits complemented by subtle light oak. It has a generous palate structure with ripe fruit flavours of raspberry, light plum and sweet spices with underlying distinctive pepper of Coonawarra Shiraz. Sweet vanilla oak and chocolaty maturation tones combined with a fine tannin coating, adds to the wine’s lingering fruit finish.
