Eikendal Cuvee Rouge 2012

The Eikendal Rouge is an easy drinking, red wine with a lively cherry, berry and mint bouquet on the nose, and flavours of red and black berries on the palate. Careful blending has created a wine with soft tannins, and a pleasing finish.

Enjoy this wine with good friends around a fire, with light Italian dishes such as Spaghetti Bolognese, or a cured meat platter. Serving Temperature: 18°C - 20°C in big, red wine glasses.
