A full bodied claret with excellent structure and depth.
Tasting Notes: A beautiful deep red colour. Delicate aromas of black plum, cedar and soft vanilla oak. The ripe, dark fruits carry through to the palate, that has well integrated, velvety tannins. This is a full bodied claret with excellent structure that carries the flavours to a long, lengthy finish.
