Orange River Cellars Lyra Vega 2013

This fresh, yet full-bodied blend of Petit Verdot, Merlot, Shiraz and Tannat, exudes aromas of blackcurrants and raspberry intermingled with soft vanilla tones derived from complex oaking. Spending 18 months in a combination of French, American and Hungarian barrels allowed the wine to evolve, releasing red- and blueberry flavours wrapped in velvety tannins.
