1 x Case (6 bottles) of Marklew Family Reserve
Barrel maturation – 18 months in a selection of 30% new, 50% 2nd, 20% 3rd fill French 300 litre barrels. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrels.
There are chocolate and loads of cherries on the nose. This is complemented by the full Tabaco and more dark chocolate on the palette.
The winemaker suggests that the Family Reserve can be enjoyed now but will definitely improve with bottle age (up until 6 years from vintage) and compliments the following foods: Red Meats, roasts, venison, chocolate chilly steak and strawberries.
