THE NAVIGATOR 2017
In homage to Prince Henry the Navigator and patron of early Portuguese exploration, this aromatic Rhône blend seamlessly combines the rich flavours of Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Viognier.
Aromas of cool-climate spice with white pepper and cloves. Floral hints courtesy of the Viognier. The spiciness carries through to the palate and is complemented by black berry flavours. The Grenache contributes red berry fruit, fine tannins and a long finish.
Pairs well with springbok and other game, meaty Italian style dishes, roast chicken, veal, duck, steak and lamb.
Serve at around 16 degrees Celsius. Peak drinking from 2020 to 2024. Maturation potential to 2027.
