Bellingham The Bernard Series Small Barrel SMV 2015 (Shiraz/Mourvedre/Viognier) (Vegan Friendly)
Coastal region, South Africa
A blend of 87% Shiraz, 10% Mourvedre and 3% Viognier. A mosaic of alluring black and red berry and cherry aromas layered with dark chocolate, winter spice, rose and violet on the nose carried through to an intricate intensely fruited palate that is both powerful and graceful. A long, smooth, succulent finish of good length and complexity. A great food wine that will match with rosemary roasted lamb, char-grilled beef steaks, spicy sausages or tomato based vegetable ragout.
