2007 Wine Magazine Best Value Awards - Best Value for Money Award
AWC Vienna 2007 International Wine Challenge - Silver
Deep ruby colour with a purple/meniscus. Sweet ripe spiced plum and red berry fruits brushed with oak vanillin; smooth tannins and multi-layered melange of fruit creates a richly textured mouthful; approachable and seductive with a velvety finish. This wine will reward 2-3 years cellaring although it already delivers great pleasure.
