Eikendal Charisma 2019

Eikendal Charisma 2019

The Charisma 2019 is an ingenious creation and red blend living up to its name. The Shiraz (Rhône Valley) lends a tight, fresh structure with aromatic and seasoned undertones. Petit Verdot (Bordeaux) contributes a rich berry character and the Sangiovese, in true Italian style, adds fruity flavours with flair on the palate. The result is a bold, charming, seductive and ultimately elegant wine.

Pair with Mushroom & Chorizo Risotto, Veal, Chocolate Truffles
