  • Colour

    Vibrant deep red colour with purple hues

  • Aroma

    The lifted aroma displays juicy black cherry, plum, and blueberry fruits, with a hint of violets and sweet cinnamon.

  • Palate

    The long supple and luscious palate is full of plump black fruits with delicious ripe chewy tannins, leading into a silky smooth finish with hints dark chocolate and toasty oak.

    Hand picked. 7 days on skins. 24 months of maturation in 1st-and 2nd-use French oak. Regional enough, be it the stamp of place or the traditional approach to making wine in these parts, I am unsure. Dark plum, Asian herb, baking spice, anise and spiky acidity. Rich, round and slickly made.
