Vrede en Lust Boet Erasmus 2015

Very primary on the nose - lifted red and black fruit, tobacco and vanilla plus a little earthiness. Full bodied with pure fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins, with long and savory finsih. Poised and understated, this has a good future ahead of it.

Beef fillet, rump and sirloin steak as well as rich meat dishes with well-reduced sauces. Also pairs well with a range of mature and rich cheeses.
