Avontuur Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve 2017

Avontuur Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve 2017

Aroma: Dark plum and ripe black cherries with a hint of liquorice and nutmeg entice on the nose.

Flavour: This elegant wine has a well-rounded mouthfeel with alcohol and wood in balance, leading to a multi-dimensional tasting experience. Sweet spice and fruit dominate now with an expectation of smokiness typical of the style, to develop with time in the bottle.

A food-friendly wine that will be excellent with a variety of meats and curries, including vegetable curry.
