Wine tasting notes

This opulent Cabernet Sauvignon has a red dark hue. The nose is saturated with licorice, vanilla and spices, while on the palate it has round and supple tannins as well as an array of red fruit such as red cherries and pomegranate. The finish is long and well integrated.

Vinification Notes

Grapes were hand harvested in selected blocks between 4th and 10th April. Alcoholic fermentation and extended maceration on the skins took place for 25-30 days in open-top barrels with manual punch downs for better extraction and a lush and broad mouthfeel. The wine was then aged in 100% new French oak barrels (Mercurey Tonnellerie) for 16-18 months with gentle racking.
