Deep ruby red in colour with aromas of ripe berry fruits with plum and blueberry notes. An elegant balanced wine with the Touriga Franca providing body and flavour supported by the structure and acidity of the Cabernet Sauvignon, together they provide a vibrant creamy texture.

Great accompaniment to rich red meat dishes such as grilled and roast lamb or steak, also pairs well with most game and mushroom based dishes.
