Full bodied red wine, Fruit driven food wine
This dark red coloured wine has intense red fruit aromas of cherry, strawberry and cranberry, withunderlying coconut and cinnamon spice on the nose. These exquisite aromas carry through onto a rich, creamy palate where it lingers for moments after the wine exits the palate. Silky, well-integrated and elegant tannins keep this wine in perfect harmony and balance.
