Backsberg Family Reserve Red 2005

Backsberg Family Reserve Red 2005

High density vineyards produced grapes with exceptional flavours of cassis, raspberry and tobacco. Extended skin contact and ageing in small French oak barriques have contributed added complexity via cedar and vanilla characters.

This blend matches classic evening meals such as roast beef or lamb.
