Alluring aromas of strawberries and ripe raspberries are prominent on both the nose and palate. The wine has a wonderfully elegant texture with soft lush tannins that seamlessly blends into the wonderfully dense explosion of fruit on the mid-palate. The opulent fruit is beautifully restrained by the bright and lively acidity which stands out on entry and lingers on to the long fruity finish.
This wine goes exceptionally well with roast meats accompanied with teriyaki sauce or a plum dressing.
