Tasting Notes

Wine style
Sweet | 1 2 3 4 5| Dry
Light  | 1 2 3 4 5 | Full bodied

Colour
Dark, rich plummy colour.

Bouquet
Complex combination of dark fruits, white pepper, dark chocolate and a hint of mint supported by subtle spicy undertones.

Palate
The complexity on the nose flows over to the palate. The wine is big and round on entry with silky smooth tannins. Rich, ripe fruit on the back palate combined with a well-balanced acidity is responsible for a lingering finish and rounds off a perfectly balanced wine.

Food
Kudu fillet with couscous and a red wine reduction.
