Ripe and boozy with dark fruits and a peppery lift.
Flavour Profile & PairingsDishes out plenty of black raspberry, raspberry, crushed flowers and ample minerality on the nose. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that has beautiful concentration, a layered, balanced feel and ample length.
Dark, rich, boozy fruits supported with plenty of tannic structure can handle a cheese with some real punch to it; we recommend I Am Nut Okay's fabulous C'e Dairy, or if you're bold enough: Minerthreat.
