Young and vibrant, with aromas of raspberries and blue berries, toasted pine nuts and finish with dark chocolate. Hand picked grapes. 18 months in French oak.
Excellent with rich meat dishes, fried or smothered, with rich sauces or as a meditation wine. The winemaker loves to combine the wine with roasted duck.
