The flagship Bordeaux style red from Oldenburg, showing a deep, luxurious garnet colour. This wine oozes complexity and lushness. Shy at first, the inviting nose opens up and delivers waves of sandalwood, blackcurrant, violets, nutmeg, cherry tobacco, rosemary and lavender. Hints of liquorice and juicy black fruit follow through on the palate, with mouth-watering acidity and plushy tannins. Braised plums, brambles and luscious cherries complete the flavour profile. A fabulous wine that will easily benefit from ageing another 10 – 12 years.
