Mooiplaas Rosalind 2007

A well crafted wine showing elegance & balance that can be matured for 12 - 20 years. A intense dark ruby colour with cherries, plums & fynbos on the nose. The palate shows tight grip of oak balanced with excellent fruit structure. Elegant, well balanced and rounded.

Excellent with grilled or roast sirloin, rump and fillet of beef and venison. Rich beef, lamb or venison stew. Particularly well paired with grilled leg of lamb stuffed with wild garlic and rosemary or deboned oxtail infused with truffle oil.
