Wine Description:

Produced from vines grown on South East and West facing slopes, with 12 months in new and old French oak barriques, this wine displays black fruit and cherries with gentle smoky oak. Fantastic value!

Tasting Note:

Aromas of ripe black cherry and damson with a hint of toasty spice. Rich and generous on the palate - full-flavoured with intense plum and sour cherry fruit, and notes of dark chocolate - balanced by tangy, juicy acidity.

Food Suggestion:

Duck in plum sauce... or rich beef stews, cassoulet or even belly of pork.
