Four of us delighted in a Sunday night indulgence of lamb racks, asparagus wrapped prosciutto and a bottle of wine or two, or three…!
‘Yummy’ was the first manageable adjective. As the group of cab blend sceptics became more tantalised and receptive to this brew, the words came. ‘Big like a cab, a thick wine with a fruity smell but also soft and smooth with no acidity. Liquid velvet. A sign of a well blended wine’.
The deep red hue is marvellous, followed by the enticing bouquet - slightly spicy with a fruity waft. The wine delivers a seductive grab – fruity, pleasantly dry, and no sign of acidity biting. Bold, but not too intense or sweet. As such, the liquid velvet glides throughout the mouth, tantalising with lashes of cherry, berry and subtle spice, complementing the lamb’s savoury profile and popping the prosciutto alive. The wine settled elegantly in the mouth, leaving us all reaching for more. The sceptics agreed BUY! Treat yourself to this wine when you’re after something a little more special, for that ahhhh moment that reminds you what quality really is.
You will not be disappointed.
