Tasting Notes

Focused and elegant with deliciously pure black cherry, strawberry and dark chocolate notes and lingering roasted coffee bean flavours.

Food Pairing

Recommended with a fillet of beef or gnocchi with shavings of almond.

Cellaring Notes

The wine has an aging potential of at least ten years from vintage.

Vinification

Fermented in wooden vats and stainless steel tanks. 5% of the juice was barrel fermented to preserve the fruit flavours of the berries. 16 to 20 days skin contact resulted in excellent colour, concentration aroma and flavour compounds.
