Wines produced from this grape are powerful, age-worthy, with pronounced flavours of dark berries, chocolate, tobacco, liquorice and spices.
Style | Full Bodied
A wine that is over 13.5% alcohol with more complex flavours and a richer mouthfeel. Factors such as climate, grape variety, ageing in the winery, residual sugar level and alcohol level affect the fullness of flavour and will be good clues to look out for.
