|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 15%|
|Colour:||It boasts a bright ruby red colour with vibrant purple hues.|
|Aroma:||Aromas of cinnamon, white pepper and cedary oak.|
|Palate:||The palate is spicy and elegant with pronounced red berry fruit flavours and balanced oak in the background adding complexity. The acidity provides real liveliness and the tannins are fine grained and well integrated. This wine will gain complexity with age, try it in the cellar for 4 to 6 years from vintage.|
