Deep, dark ruby red in colour. The bouquet is intense showing flavours of fruit cake and ripe raisins. Hints of
cassis and dark berry fruits. Smooth, soft entry with rich vanilla, coconut and raisin fruit exudes on the palate. This wine is rich and warm and has a long length and finish. With time the balance will become even more exciting as the wine becomes more integrated.
