Van Loveren River Red 2013

A hugely popular, smooth red blend. Good upfront fruit and berries on the nose and palate. Soft tannins and a pleasant lingering palate.

A versatile blend to enjoy with most foods, or as a pleasant quaffing wine. Good with red meat dishes, pizza, casseroles and flavourful cheeses.
