An Overview

Aromas of blackberries and blueberries with a note of fresh coriander. Layers of complexity unfolds on the palate with silky tannins. Exceptional balance, beautifully structured with hints of chocolate.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of blackberries, cassis and fennel, with resonating layers of forest floor and cedarwood, harmoniously integrated in a focused, delicately textured palate. Pairs perfectly with fennel crusted sirloin, celeriac purée, potato fondant, hazelnut beurre noisette and a fig and red wine jus.
