Platter * * * ½ – From Wellington’s newly demarcated Bovlei ward, 2016 red fruit & herbaceous touch; intense, with sturdy tannin & lively acidity that will integrate with time.
Vibrant purple heart with ruby rim colour. Rich, fresh berries, plums dark chocolate and a touch of mocha on the nose. A wine packed with red and dark fruit, following through with a persistent finish.
Drink it comfortably with a range of Italian dishes and with tomato based roasted chicken, mushrooms and parmesan. Pair it with richly sauced grilled steak or with hearty stews.
