Excellent deep ruby red. Nose is reminiscent of dark berry fruits with hints of nutmeg and vanillin. Excellent, well structured palate with ripe, fine tannins and a lingering rich finish. Serve with Tzatziki Roast Beef or Roast Rack of Lamb with sautéed or pickled vegetables.

The vines are planted on loamy sand and weathered granite soil, on the lower slopes.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness in March.
