★ Good Wine “A simple but pleasing red wine. Ripe and fruit driven with blueberry, caramel, vanilla and clove. Freshness comes lightly and with a kick on the finish, but this wine is predominantly an easy drinking number. “

This is a good wine to enjoy on its own, but if you want to drink it with food look for easy and flavourful dishes like BBQ grill meats, burgers or pizza.
