Wine characteristics

Intense red colour with light garnet tinges. Intense and uniquely complex aroma with hints of red fruits under spirit, sweet spices and rose petals. Sweet but not cloying flavour with an enviable aftertaste of cherry.

Pairings

Sweet wine par excellence. It combines perfectly with blue-veined cheese, dried cakes, short pastries and dunking biscuits.
