TOFFEE-CHUNK-SYRAH

Toffee Chunk originated from the toffee characters associated with the unique maturation of this wine. Very distinct Toffee aromas dominate followed by a smokiness and an extended berry finish that follows through onto the palate. Enjoy with asiago cheese, cured or smoked meats, nice peppery or spicy steak or how about your favourite cheese dish.
