Colour: Deep ruby red magenta with a brick red hue.
Nose: Cedar and nutty oak note with a hint of vanilla with black fruits that are reminiscent of mulberry and raspberry.
Palate: Black fruits combine well with a solid mid palate highlighting oak tannin and flavour. Crisp acidity keeps the freshness and appeal of this full bodied style.
Potential: This vintage has excellent potential for aging
Foods: King Henry (very thick rib eye) Steak
Technical: Bottled April 2011 under screw cap, Alcohol 14.5%, pH 3.49, TA 6.35
Vintage: The 2008 vintage was the tale of two vintages. The first half was outstanding (and represents our wines) but a heatwave caused some issues later.
