Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 2012

Lovely deep ruby in appearance, with a densely coloured core. Layers of complex aromas, from bright herbal top notes to subtle sandalwood and cigar box base notes. Ripe bramble berries and plums entice with their generous fruity notes.The layered palate leads with a creamy, seductive entry onto fine grained, chalky tannins, accentuating the savoury nature of this wine, and finishes on a persistently fresh yet harmonious not.

Red meat, dairy or tomato based pastas. A glass onits own goes down great as well.
