Tasting Note

Unmistakably claret on the nose; dark damson fruit backed by good depth on the palate. Easy to enjoy on its own thanks to its ripe yet present structure, this is proper Bordeaux that pairs well with a wide range of dishes.

Food Match

Great with BBQ meats or bangers and mash – a great all-rounder
