Fairbairn Capital Trophy Wine Show 2003 - Bronze
The wine has an excellent colour concentration of dense ruby red. Perfumed nose of fresh black currant fruit enveloped in spiced new French oak. Voluptuous melange of fruit flavours in a cloak of oak and soft, ripe tannins augers well for ageing.

Partner with venison roast, ostrich fillet, beef stroganoff or mature cheddar cheese.
