The Grande Provence Red 2015

A perfectly balanced, full-bodied and multi-dimensional blend with a beautiful deep garnet hue. This wine exhibits a powerful and complex aroma with notes of cigar box, cherry tobacco and cedar, overlaid with cassis, roasted strawberries, bright red cherries and raspberries.The wine has a smooth, supple entry with seamless integration of oak. The flavours on the palate echo those found on the nose and are cradled by pliable, polished tannins that linger like a first kiss. This is a classy and perfectly balanced example of a modern take on Bordeaux.

Bordeaux-style blends are the perfect partner to lamb, beef, game and duck. Enjoy this wine with full flavoured, slow roasted red meat dishes, lamb cutlets with rosemary and creamy veal saltimbocca.
