Deep crimson in colour, with a rich, spicy, smoky aroma, showing hints of chocolate and blackberry and a rounded, powerful palate with mouthfilling fruit.

Winemaking

The grapes are crushed and destalked with no yeast added (the fermentation relies entirely on wild yeasts). The fermentations lasts for 15 days and the cap is punched down twice daily to aid the extraction of colour and tannin. The wine is then aged 60% in vats and 40% in 2 - 4 year old demi muids.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

A thick, grilled T-bone tames the tannins and sings with the peppery fruit.
