Bright ruby to dark purple in colour, it promises plenty of power. The nose is complex with powerful aromas of blackberry and blueberry with, rose, rosemary, violets and floral notes as well as a hint of spice.
The palate is nicely concentrated with fine tannis. The flavours of blueberry, plum and blackberry are big, with hints of bittersweet cocoa and a subtle stimulating flavour of mint and violet, dark cherry, blackberry, red plum, earth, espresso, tobacco, dark chocolate, black pepper, black tea, violet. Very complex.
The vineyards are around 15 years old and farmed organically, sustainably and biodynamically.
Harvested by hand. The juice is pressed directly to 3rd use, 225 Litre French oak barrels, where the malolactic fermentation takes place for about 4 months.
The wine is aged for 4 months in 50% oak barrel and 50% in clay amphoras.
Lamb is the best match, but aromatic meat dishes such as Thai beef or Cuban pork are good options too.
