Vierkoppen Weavers Nest Reserve 2013

Complex with spicy pepper bouquet and ripe plum and berry fruit on the palate with a cigar box finish. More Bordeaux in style than any of our previous wines Pair with charcuterie, roast meets and especially lamb. Drinking well now but will only improve with time as the tannins integrate and soften.
