Chocolate Box, Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro, (Cherry Chocolate), Barossa Valley
£19.99

Tasting notes:

Deep russet red. Earthy aromas of savoury oak, dark cherries and stewed rhubarb.
Spice and cinnamon over a robust and generous body. It leaves a persistent lingering silky finish.

A perfect match with game dishes such as water fowl, pheasant and venison, spicy pasta dishes and lamb. Low-yielding fruit was sourced from selected premium Barossa Valley vineyards during a drought year. The selected fruit was crushed into open fermenters for up to 15 days extended fermentation and maceration

Drinking well now and for 7 years
