1707 Reserve Red is a full bodied, seamless blend boasting an abundance of red berry fruit, dark chocolate and cigar box aromas.
All the components for this blend were selected from one grower, located in the Vlottenburg ward. The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness to ensure that the best qualities of the cultivars are represented in the final blend.
