Description

Superb nose of raspberry liqueur, blackberry jam, herbal tones, and licorice. Intensely pure, full-bodied mouthfeel, good freshness, and a lengthy finish. This wine should continue to drink well for another 3-4 years.

Try with braised or stewed red meat and root vegetables.

Harvest date determined by daily tasting for optimum maturity. The varieties are vinified separately. Maceration of around 3 to 4 weeks. Gentle cap punch-downs and pump-overs. 15% oak aging in 228L Burgundy barrels for one year, very low oak impact, the goal is to soften the tannins and bring more length to the mid-palate – the rest is aged in concrete tanks to preserve the fruit purity.
