Eikendal Classique 2009

The true essence of Eikendal…no stone was left unturned in creating this quality. Tightness, freshness, length, pure elegant fruit, with finesse as the core. Perfect oak integration and not your typical wood chewing icon wine. A wine with soft nuances, whispering it’s secret in your ear. This wine typifies what Eikendal is all about – it is a classy, understated red wine with staying power.

Enjoy with medium rare fillet medallions and rocket, Carpaccio with fresh beetroot, or a rich chocolate and berry tart.Serving Temperature: 18oC -20oC in large red wine glasses.
