Case of Paserene Union
Grown entirely in the Tulbagh region the 2019 Union is dark and inky. Now 100% Syrah, this wine has ample complex aromas of blueberries, charcoal, violets and bacon fat. Extraordinary balance between primary fruit aromas and deep charry mineral components gives the wine an inviting natural warmth and broodiness. Big supple tannins with a reigned in acidity will make this wine a pleasure to drink for the next 20 -30 years.
When you pour a glass of Union red wine, consider pairing it with a rich cut of red meat cooked to a perfect medium-rare or wild game meat grilled on a flame for that intense smoked-wood flavour.
Well-aged or hard cheeses (like Stilton or Gouda) are the perfect partners for a wine and cheese pairing and, matched with a spoonful or two of mulberry preserve, these cheeses will bring out the juicy berry notes inherent in this decadent red.
For dessert, opt for a dark chocolate tart with a rich, buttery crust to bring out the sweetness of the wine.
