Red plum in colour, with blackberry, cherry, truffle and cedar wood on the nose. The palate, medium in body, shows an abundance of fruit, softness and fine subtle tannins towards the back. The wine has a dry and lingering finish.

Serve with roast Lamb, Eland medallions, Italian pasta or pizza. An excellent match with Chicken Coq au Vin or Lamb stew. Chef's Special: Springbok Carpaccio
