Reserve Red 2017
2017 was a warm vintage and the Bordeaux reds truly benefited from the sun and heat and have showcased depth and great colour.
Our 2016 Reserve Red is a deep dark garnet red colour. The nose is filled with fruit and spice. First thing that comes to mind is black currants, plum, mocha, smoke, and anise. I love how this wine is evolving and showcasing strength. Great tannin, good fruit, and a touchy of earthy complexity. It finishes dry but the round mouthfeel seduces you for more.
This red blend is a great match with anything that shouts out spice, comfort, richness and salinity. It can be great to pair with stews, roasts, steak, and anything with a little fat and salt. I see it do well with some firm aged cheddars, manchego, and even some funky blues like St.Agur.
