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.

The grapes of this wine are harvested at night. A pre-fermentation cold soak is done with frequent pump-overs. This is followed by a temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation, and then 4 months ageing in French and Central European oak, before being bottled. 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 deep, black cherry colour with light purple glints. Red berry and black fruit on the nose with strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant coming through together with subtle toasty oak and hints of spice. Very flavoursome and round on the palate with good acidity and a lingering finish.
Great with highly-seasoned dishes, stews, red meat and game dishes.
Best served at a temperature of 16-18ºC.
