Colour: Concentrated and vibrant; dark mulberry red. 
Nose: This wine carries a subtle perfume of wild flowers, sub-tropical fruit, cinnamon and vanilla oak spice.
Palate: The palate senses blackcurrants, liquorice and spice, a freshly integrated, balanced acid and tannin ratio with youthful expression. The tannins have a firm grip that show the long path of evolution ahead, but they are certainly neither 'clawy' nor aggressive. The future bodes well for this 2005 vintage.

Anything smokey goes with Lourens River Valley 2005 - Smoked Salmon, a grilled side of Bacon and of course Kassler rib. Try it with grilled Tuna, rare or medium-rare Ostrich, Rabbit and any dish that combines Chicken and Bacon.
