This Rooster shows great ‘posture’ as he moves through the flock. Ever-changing notes of blue plum, black cherry, currant and smoky oak escape from the glass. This medium-bodied red has soft, smooth tannins, and fruit-flavours of cherry, blueberry and plum, accented by a touch of spice.
Enjoy with peppercorn pâté; lamb chops; grilled steaks; beef, bean and vegetable stews; beef brisket; leg of lamb; pot roast and root vegetables.
