Clear bright, deep opaque purple wine. Clean nose with intense immediate blackcurrant fruit. The vanilla integrates with the spice and berries to create good complexity. Full bodied palate with ripe tannins. The ripe cassis fruit is well integrated with the oak. Good balance between fruit and tannin with long full aftertaste.

A definite food wine. Enjoy it with any of the following but do not forget to include your friends.1. Fillet of Beef with Wild Mushroom Sauce2. Roast Springbok with caramelised oranges and prunes3. Assorted cheese platter
