Colour: Bright Crimson hue
Bouquet: Uplifted blue fruits with savory exotic spices of cumin, cardamom and cinnamon.
Palate: Fresh red fruits of cherry, with secondary jubey flavours of cherry-cola. Balanced with vibrant, juicy acidity and dark seed tannin.
Cellaring: Good to drink in the short term but it should age well for 10 years or more.
Pairing: Best paired with firm cheeses such as Gruyere
Vintage: A warm, dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and some February rain gave the vines a well-deserved drink and freshened them up before the grapes were harvested.
