The Charisma 2016 is a visionary creation at the hand of Cellar Master, Nico Grobler, inspired by his travel experiences. The Shiraz (Rhône Valley) lends a tight, fresh structure with aromatic and seasoned undertones. Petit Verdot (Bordeaux) contributes a rich berry character and the Sangiovese, in true Italian style, adds fruity flavours with flair. The result is a bold, charming, seductive and ultimately elegant wine.

Pair with Pappardelle with Beef Ragu, Mushroom Puff Pastry and Mezze Platters
