Veenwouden Classic Reserve 2006

The Veenwouden Classic 2006 has dense, saturated purple colour with aromatic offerings of violet, cigar box, chocolate and crushed dark mulberry. This is followed on the palate by cassis and a hint of espresso roast. This full-bodied wine exhibits terrific extract with ripe tannins, exquisite balance and a long subtle velvety finish.

This wine will go well with: Roast Lamb or Beef, steak with berry jus. Rich hearty casseroles.
