On the nose, there are uplifting notes of mint, crushed flowers and white pepper enriched with sweet, red fruit. This is a welcoming medium to full bodied wine with soft tannins rendering it smooth and very approachable. It is the perfect wine for enjoying with a cheese plate on a long winter evening infront of the fire. It is the ideal complement to succulent roasts, grilled meats and tasty, slow cooked stews.
