This medium-bodied wine with a healthy ruby red colour has good varietal identity. Fresh and vibrant with layers of summer berry flavours complemented by hints of chocolate and spicy vanilla oak. Tannins are soft; the acids gentle and ripe berry fruit is integrated to produce a clean, balanced wine.
Produced for immediate enjoyment or medium-term cellaring.
A good match for pasta with meat sauce, grilled vegetables, meat casseroles.
