Wine tasting notes

Deep ruby red with purple hues, notes of black cherries, sage, chocolate, cassis and new leather that come to life in this opulent wine. This is a huge, brooding red that will reward a fewyears ageing while its formidable tannins melt away and the oak integrates further.

Vinification Notes

The grapes were hand-picked from the end September-beginning October. The fermentation lasted seven days and took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Temperatures did not exceed 27ºC during fermentation. After two weeks of maceration the wine was transferred into barriques, where the malolactic fermentation was completed within one month. The wine was aged for 14 months in the French oak barriques before bottling. The wine was fined with egg white before bottling. It remained in bottle for a year before release.
