Legends Estates’ Top 5 red blend is a rich, full-bodied wine. Concentrated flavours of spice and leather are complemented by ripe black fruit such as currant and plum. Hints of smoke and subtle herbs add further layers of flavour, resulting in a complex, big red that finishes with finesse.

Christmas cake spice and sandalwood aromas mingle with red and dark berry fruit on the nose of this gorgeous red blend. It caresses the palate with a spice-laden shower of blueberry, red berry fruit and sweet, ripe black cherry. It lingers with balance, charm and elegance. It’s divine on its own and would be perfect poured with crown roast of pork and root veggies. (Vic Harradine)
