Portside Red 2016 (Bordeaux)

Portside Red has an elegant finish on the tongue with subtle tannins. Full-bodied, dry and a savoury, more muscular than fruity.

Tasting notes

Portside Red burst with luscious perfumed fruits and meaty dark plums with elegant, soft, subtle tannins as it finishes on the tongue. Enjoy now or cellar for further complexity.

Food pairing notes

Portside Red is an ideal partner for a juicy steak or to enjoy on its own but Springbok medallions & blackcurrant coulis or entrecôte with caramelized shallots or Welsh rarebit will end a fine dinner.
