Inky ruby with rims of garnet. Wonderfully-fresh and complex with attractive ripe sweetness of red-fruit notes, spicy oak and toasty smokiness. Roasted nuts and faint peppadew-characters linger to the first sip.Full-bodied with integrated oaking showing through layers of austere sweet plums, ripe cherries and wet tobacco. A luscious roundness is offset by serious, yet friendly tannins and a long and memorable finish.
The fullness of the wine dictates that it should be paired with fuller-flavoured dishes such as spicy espetadas, shish kebabs or barbequed spare ribs. For something a bit different, also try a tuna tartare laced with rocket pesto.
