I look like in between medium to deep ruby with a slight garnet taint starting to appear. Those brownish colours reveal that I am not that young, but we can’t yet say that I am an old wine either.

I am a very aromatic vintage. If you give me a sniff, you’ll see what I mean by that. Violets, plums, blackcurrants, cinnamon, sweet tobacco (probably indicator of oak maturation) and hay.

My acidity cuts off the tannins and the alcohol, which makes me a well-balanced medium bodied wine. You can still find that floral note and those dark fruits such as blackberries and blackcurrants. I’ve heard more than once that I have a coffee-like touch. There is also a bit of smokiness in me that adds texture and lingers for a while.

Room temperature for me please, excepted if the room temperature is above 20 degrees, which you and me know is pretty common in Australia. What to eat you ask? Grilled meats, casseroles, lamb, caramelised veggies like pumpkins and carrots, blue cheeses and of course, spicy pizza.
