Ripe purple plums and dark cherries provide an intense up front fruit explosion which develops into a slight earthiness with whiffs of sweet spice and mocha/chocolate to add interest.The wine has firm tannins and an elegant, juicy mouth-feel whilst the subtle oak regime gives the wine backbone, but also softens the taste experience. The sweetness of the ripe fruit and the mocha follow-through from the nose ensures the consumer comes back for more!

Will pair well with flavourful red meat dishes especially venison.
