Pour yourself a glass
The nose is a mixture of red and black fruit with pencil lead and sous-bois and a hint of incense.
The Ironclad 2018 is predominantly Cabernet Franc and Merlot supported by Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is medium bodied with a ferrous grip that knots together with some excellent acidity. The flavours are more of the black fruit with some attractive herbal notes highlighting the Cabernet Franc.
Pair the Ironclad wine with a shrimp risotto.
