Beyerskloof Field Blend 2005

Beyerskloof Field Blend 2005

A full bodied Bordeaux blend with a pitch black colour. Intense dark berries from the fruit, chocolate and mocha from the new oak maturation. The boldness of the fruit in combination with the smooth tannins leaves a lasting impression on the after taste, with a hint of sweetness. The wine is big and bold.

Heavy, rich flavoured meat dishes is a must.
