Our tasting notes:  

Deep garnet colour with purplish tints.  The wine reveals slightly spicy notes of raspberry and cherry on the nose.  This wine is crunchy and chunky on the palate, sweet yet fresh and crisp.

Food matches:

This wine will pair very well with duck breast, stewed beef, grilled meat, cheese or simply enjoy it by itself.
