One can expect highly concentrated flavours of black forest berries infused with spice, cedar and vanilla. Extended skin contact and ageing in small French barriques have contributed to its complexity.

This wine is the perfect accompaniment to classic hearty fare such as roast beef or lamb. The connoisseur’s preferred red blend.
