Tasting Notes

On the nose, there are uplifting notes of mint, crushed flowers and white pepper enriched with sweet, red fruit. This is a welcoming medium to full bodied wine with soft tannins rendering it smooth and very approachable. It is the perfect wine for enjoying with a cheese plate on a long winter evening infront of the fire. It is the ideal complement to succulent roasts, grilled meats and tasty, slow cooked stews.

More Info

The grapes are crushed and macerate on the skins for 6 hours at 8° C. The temperature is then brought up to a controlled 28° C for fermentation for about 8 days and then a further period of maceration for 10 days. Ageing this wine on lees for 2 weeks and then matured for 2 months in steel followed by 18 months in first quality french barriques.
