  • Tasting notes

    Intense aromas of ripe, stewed red berries and a hint of roasted coffee beans, graphite and cinnamon. Round and smooth on the palate, with well-structured tannins and flavours of stewed prune and smoke.

  • Viticultural notes

    Sustainably cultivated vines of an average age between twenty to forty years. 70% of vines are planted in clay and sandy-flint soil with the remaining 30% in limestone soil.

  • Winemaking notes

    Grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually. Fermentation followed for twelve days at a temperature of 25° Celsius, with daily pumping over and constant sampling. Malolactic fermentation occurred in 228-litre oak barrels for half of the grapes, with the other half in stainless steel vats. Aged 6 months before bottling unfiltered.
