Winemaker’s tasting notes –Deep crimson velvet like the colour of a Pontiff’s mozzetta. The bouquet is complex, teeming with notes of ripe dark cherries, mulberries, roses and violets. Dark chocolate and mellow black fruit contrast with bright acidity to lend a chiaroscuro effect to the palate. A hint of vanilla spice from integrated oak, warming alcohol, savoury, persistent, with an enveloping powdery tannin and balsamic finish.

Food matching: juicy pink-cooked lamb, roast venison, chateaubriand, Tuscan Peposo braised beef; alternatively: mushrooms, truffles.

DISCOURSE ABOUT NAMES

We gave the name of our hero-sage – Galfridus – to our flagship shiraz, and he is depicted on the label inside the illuminated letter “ G” that was found in a mediaeval manuscript.
