Winter Pairings for Nicolas 2016

Nicolas 2016 is a blend brimming with character, with each component outstanding in its own right which together creates something exceptional. Shiraz, a signature variety for Boschendal, adds intrigue and depth with spicy notes. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot provide a classical structure which complements the beautiful deep colour and vibrant red fruit provided by the Malbec. While the Merlot enhances the fruit profile and Cabernet Franc elaborates on the spicy richness of the Shiraz.
