Tasting Notes

Deep cherry red in colour on the nose this wine displays aromas of candied fruits, cocoa and oak. Rounded, savoury well balanced and complex on the palate, with great harmony and a long finish.

Food Pairing

A perfect partner for all kinds of meat, cured cheeses and roasts.

Technical Information

The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked before embarking on the maceration process for 8 days to allow the skins to be in contact with must. Must is then fermented at a controlled temperature (26-29 ºC) for 8 to 12 days. This ensures that the wine acquires its characteristic colour and polished tannins. Finally the wine is aged for 18 months in new American oak barrels before resting quietly in bottles to ensure complete maturity for 18 months.
