Description

Bright garnet in the glass with intense aromas of black cherry, baking spice and vanilla with a touch of earthiness and leather. Medium bodied with flavours of fresh black cherries sweet notes from the oak with fine, ripe tannins, bright acidity and a refreshing but savoury finish.

Decant and serve in large Burgundy-style glasses, slightly cool (18-20oC). Excellent served alongside classic Bistro fare, grilled or roasted poultry and red meats, game, lightly smoked meats and semi-firm cheeses. Unlike many wines made from Gamay, this powerfully structured version will reward cellaring for up to 10 years with a cornucopia of new aromas and mellowed textures.
