Tasting Notes

A dark cherry red introduces the wine in the glass. The fresh aromas which greet the nose are reminiscent of crushed red and black berries oozing fragrant juice. The wine is unwooded yet the grape tannins are plucky and fill the mouth as do the berry flavours. A wine designed for early enjoyment and not for long-term cellaring. Good with informal foods such as pizza, pasta, grilled sausages, traditional braai or beef casserole.

Ageing Potential

Drink now or mature for up to 6 years.
