"Favourite match from last night's feast at The Ledbury was pigeon and Savage Red Blend. Some inspired wines with the tasting menu" Paola Tich


Tasting Notes

The flagship Savage red 2013 is a blend of 67% Syrah, 12% Cinsaut, 12% Grenache and 9% Touriga Nacional, with a cool 13 degrees alcohol. The colour is bright translucent cherry ruby red. The nose is lifted, perfumed and aromatic showing blood oranges, white blossom, raspberry coulis, sandalwood and lush red current and small red forest berry fruits. Multi-dimensional and multi-layered, this wine has all the complexity of a Grand Vin. Dusty stalky spice notes, wet river pebbles, strawberry Bon Bons and red cherry skin spice. The palate does not shout, it whispers its complexity confidently, with ultra-soft, elegant, palate balance, sweet peppery red berry fruit concentration, strawberry compote, and suave textural precision. This wine represents a master class in the art of blending, being impossible to tell where one variety ends and another starts. The whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. Drink this beauty from release or cellar for 10+ years. – Greg Sherwood MW
