H.M.S. Rattlesnake Red 750ml 2009    
Sku: 1797066*

Tasting notes
A young red wine bursting at the seams with concentrated aromas of fresh red berry fruit and plums, supported by a fusion of shiraz spice and herbal tones from the merlot. Whiffs of cacao linger through the bouquet as the wine opens up in the glass. The palate displays concentrated plum and dark chocolate flavors, with a creamy mid-palate structure and soft, supple tannins which coat the mouth from front to back, ending in a pleasant and lingering dark chocolate finish.

Other text
HMS Rattlesnake, a 16-gun sloop under the captaincy of Commander John Spranger, played a valiant role in this historical skirmish.

Food pairing
Enjoy with rich dishes such as meaty pizzas, tomato based pastas, succulent lamb chops or even on its own in good company.
