Petit Verdot 100%
The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards grown in a balanced, caring and sustainable way. The vineyards’ soils carry great importance, being very active with good biological conditions which favour rapid assimilation of reincorporated organic matter. This enables full terroir expression.

Each variety making up this wine is harvested at night. A pre-fermentation cold soak is done to help release aromas. This is followed by a temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation, during which the must stays in contact with the skins until the end of the process. The wine is then aged for ten months in American and French Bordeaux barrels.The processes leading up to the bottling (fining, stabilisation and filtering) are carried out in the gentlest way possible in order to preserve all of the wine’s character.
A ruby-red colour with light purple glints. Mineral notes on the nose with red berry fruit, ripe blackberry notes and liquorice coming through together with hints of oak, toffee and vanilla. Lots of volume and complexity on the palate. Very long and elegant.
Excellent with stews, roasts, red meat, small game dishes, cheese or rIce dishes.
Best served at a temperature of 16-18ºC.
