The Winexpert Private Reserve Bordeaux is in the style of fine wines of the southern Rhône Valley. This Bordeaux style derives its complex character from Cabernet and Merlot grapes. Fermented on crushed grapes. Rich flavours suggestive of cherry, raspberry, blackberry and plum combine with notes of pepper and chocolate. The finish shows a subtle herbaceous note and a suggestion of cedar and violets.
Fermented on grapes skins for more flavour and character. Enjoyable early but does show its harmonious best after 9 months.

Bordeaux refers to a wine from Bordeaux, France. Over 90% of Bordeaux wines are red wines made with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon but can also include Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Bordeaux wines are medium- to full-bodied with aromas of black currant, plums, and earthy notes finishing with mouth-drying tannins.
The Languedoc is one of the largest wine regions in the world. It is in the sunny South of France situated along the French Mediterranean coast. The vineyards benefit from the Mediterranean climate with several hours of warm sunshine and cool nights from the sea breezes. They are known for their plentiful land with soil ranging from rocky sand to thick clay making it an ideal place to grow grapes.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
The big wines that can stand on their own. Often premium wines with higher tannins, alcohol levels and oaking levels as they all factor in a bigger tasting wine.
Big reds like Cabernet and ultra premium wines will have higher levels of oak as it adds to the complexity and finish that wine drinkers expect.
