4 /5

Bra att ta med grillspett från norr. Under en middag med ett annat par.
Denna röd är körsbärsfärgad, med bruna kanter. Aromer av hallon. Det smakade rökigt.

4/5

- A powerful yet elegant Shiraz with flavours of black currant, plums and raspberries combined with white pepper, black pepper and clove spices.
- Well rounded tannins give an elegant long finish on the palate.
- This wine is ready for immediate consumption but has very good maturation potential.
