Tasting NotesWith red wines it is always important to pick the grapes when they are phonologically ripe. This is a very elusive phase and involves having the pips turn brown, the berries being a deep red colour and the palate displaying no green tannins. This wine has an extreme bouquet of cherry, pepper and blueberries, reflecting the cool climate of Darling. Dry land farming leads to very small berries and the intense deep colour of the wine.

Food MatchEntrecote, red meat, cheese.
