The oak is well integrated, lends structure without dominating. Dry, full bodied, with smooth almost silky tannins, long, lingering finish.

Drinking very well now – but has the potential for many more years development.

Drink now and for next couple of years.

Serve at just below room temperature ( 18°C ); drink on its own or as an accompaniment to pasta, pizza, risottos, lightly spiced dishes or hard cheeses.
