Old Road Wine Co French Corner Red

£13.50

SKU: OLDROADRED

Description

Home-grown in the Old Road Wine Co's very own French Corner, the Franschhoek Valley of South Africa. An expressive Rhone-based blend with equal parts Grenache Noir bringing upfront blackberry, candied cherry and plums, and Mourvedre adding juicy dark fruit and savoury richness. An element of Shiraz brings dark fruit and white pepper spice, whilst just a drizzle of Viognier binds it all together. Aromas dominated by ripe dark fruit, slick mouthfeel, supple tannins and that savoury kick on the finish. Try with game, lamb, hearty stews and casseroles.
