This is an easy-drinking Bordeaux which is not your usual earthy, mushroom, tobacco flavoured red, rather it is elegant and fruity with slightly vanilla-spiced flavours. Characteristics are between a Malbec from Argentina and the Rioja from Spain. Grape varieties: 80% Merlot and a mix of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc.
Suggested pairing is with a wide range of meat, from lighter meats to steak and most pasta dishes (also perfect for pizza).
