The wine is aged for 12 months in second-use French oak barrels, thus revealing its discreet, elegant and woody taste and improving the wine’s aroma.

Vinification

The grapes were hand-picked into small crates, immediately taken to the winery where they were cooled to a temperature of 15°C. The grapes were then separated, crushed and placed in French oak fermenting tanks for 8 to 10 days at 25°C of temperature. Daily pumping was carried out 4 or 5 times for 15 minutes. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into 225-litre French and American oak barrels used to age for 12 months.

Cellaring Potential

Consume immediately or store for up to 5 years in a cool, dark place. Open at least 1 hour before consumption, or if possible, decant the wine and serve it with 12ºC.

Tasting Note

Distinct aromas all combine seamlessly, with notes of meat, wild herbs and berry preserved peeking through. Supple on the tongue, the dark fruit intertwines with dark roasted earth flavors and hints of leather that fade into a gently dry finish.

Pairing Suggestions

Ideal for intense meat dishes, like red and white meats in the oven and game dishes.
