Grande Provence Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Grande Provence Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

A full bodied red wine with upfront red berry aromas on the nose. Ripe berry fruit, plum and delicate white pepper follow through onto the palate. A touch of mint is noticeable on the finish. Smooth with velvety tannins, well integrated oak and an elegant finish.

Versatile food wine and compliments poultry and red meat dishes, especially roasts, marinated steaks and lamb skewers with mushroom and rosemary.
