This wine goes along well with burgers, steaks, sausages and kebabs. This wine is an excellent pair alongside all the things you'd expect at a BBQ. Pairs nicely with meaty pasta dishes as well or just open and drink along with friends.
The nose is full of juicy cherries and plums with a hint of smoke. The palate is fresh and filled with more cherry fruit, balanced with good depth and structure. Extremely approachable with nice fresh acidity.
