Description

  • Wild berries
  • Cherry & spice
  • Lingering acidity
  • Well balanced

"This is classically expressed on the nose showing spiced cherry, dried herb, cured meat and anise characters. The palate is equally attractive displaying bright fruit flavours combined with lovely mid-palate weight and fine texture, backed by fine grainy tannins, finishing lingering and pleasingly dry" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

A bright, intense ruby-red in the glass with aromas that are characteristically intense, distinguished by an elegant scent of violets and tenuous perfumes of wild berries. Dry, full, properly balanced and extremely enticing with lingering acidity and flavours of cherry and spice.

The stems are separated from the grapes, which are softly pressed in cylinders under pressure gently breaking their skins and releasing the juice. The juice is left to macerate on the skins for about a week in temperature controlled stainless steel vinifiers at a temperature of about 28–30 °C. After the alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine undergoes also the malolactic fermentation, a process that lowers total acidity and makes wines seem rounder and fuller in flavour.

Food Pairing: It combines well with the hearty flavours of country cooking and it is the ideal companion of grilled red meat and cheeses aged at moderate length.
