Fermentation with indigenous yeast in oak vats. Aged for 26 months in casks made in our cooperage from selected French oak. Before bottling the wine is fined with fresh egg whites. Once bottled it will undergo a process of rounding off in the bottle for twelve months in our cellars.

TASTING

This wine has a black-cherry colour with a high robe and good density. On the nose it brings back reminders of ripe red-berry fruit, spices (pepper) and woodland herbs; the full spectrum of coffee aromas also makes a strong appearance: coffee toffees, roasted coffee, etc. with very well-integrated oaky aromas.
In the mouth it is silky-smooth, with a presence of tannin revealing its youth and good cellaring potential. The tannin backbone gives it elegance and fine balance.

Food pairing
You can pair this wine with red meat, lamb and grilled rock fish.
