Eikendal Charisma 2009

Charisma - a vision born through my travel experiences over the world. Cabernet Franc (Loire Valley) contributes a tight structure with salty undertones. Merlot (Bordeaux) ads the richness of blueberries while the Sangiovese component adds character with deep fruity flavours on the palate. Pinot Noir (Burgundy) adds finesse and passion while Malbec (the great South-American variety) brings together these complex layers, creating a boldly seductive and elegant wine. Open your mind for a taste sensation you have not experienced before. Dream of a moonlit walk through luscious vineyards... seducing your senses you have never experienced before ...

This wine is best matched to red meats, wild game and vegetables that are roasted or grilled with olive oil, herbs and garlic.Serving Temperature: 18oC -20oC in large red wine glasses.
