This is an all-time favourite of mine, and has been ever since I joined The Showroom Team many years ago. It has been consistently good in all the vintages I have tasted, and is a favourite at home with meaty dishes like lamb chops and roast beef, spaghetti Bolognese or simply just on its own.
Its sweet ripe flavour is beautifully balanced and belies its alcohol of 14%, which I feel isn't prominent at all when I drink it. It has a smooth velvety finish and is all too easy to enjoy with food and with friends, which makes it a real crowd-pleaser at parties and gatherings. I think it is fantastic value for money and punches well above its weight. Definitely worth a try.
