There is a follow-through of the aromas to the palate with dark berries dominating. In the aftertaste we find earthy, oak undertones. It is a full-bodied wine showing mature tannin structure. Good ageing potential.

Beef Fillet or Rump steak with red wine reduction or any other full-flavoured slow-cooked casserole.
