Intense dark colour, complex nose with blue and black berries and cedar aromas typical from Jonkershoek, known for its balance of elegance and power. The palate is nervous and fresh followed by fine, smooth tannins. Spent 18 months in 100% new French oak. This is a wine built to last and early drinking would benefit with decanting.
Enjoy with baked or grilled red meat or ground game, with spicy sauces.
