WINEMAKERS COMMENTS

The intent was to avoid a jammy or over extracted wine. The result is beautifully balanced with a creamy mouth feel contrasting the rich spicey flavours. This wine reflects our old world sensitivities and desire for balance.

FOOD MATCH

Beef: any cut. Works well with tomato based sauces. Rich spicy meals of veal, kangaroo and duck. You can keep drinking this one even with pudding.
