Food Pairings for Langmeil 'The Fifth Wave' Barossa Grenache
Colour: Medium depth, red, crimson. Aroma: Dark cherries and raspberry jam aromas mingle with hints of white pepper and sweet spice. Palate: Bright, sweet fruit flows onto the tongue with cherries dominating the flavour and chocolaty oak nuances add to the complexity. Fine, soft tannins and good acidity help balance the richness and the long and fruitful finish ends with that little hint of pepper and spice.
