Welmoed Heyden's Courage Red 2009

Deep dark red colour. Expressive layers of Bordeaux varietal fruit with blackcurrent ripe berry fruit and seamless tannins. Fruit layered palate with well integrated oak-derived aromas, complementing the primary varietal characters. Very elegant, well balanced, medium to full bodied wine with an excellent finish.

Enjoy on its own, best served with roast beef or rack of lamb.
