  • WINEMAKING NOTES

    The grapes are picked into small boxes of approx. 20 kilos and brought to the winery where they undergo a careful selection process before being crushed. The vinification takes place in small stainless steel fermentation tanks. The grapes are fully destemmed and crushed. After 4 days of cold maceration, the fermentation process follows under temperature-controlled conditions. The juice is gently pumped over the skins during fermentation which is long and even ensuring good aromatic and polyphenolic extraction.

  • AGEING

    100% of this wine is aged for 12-15 months in new 500 lts French oak casks. It is fined and lightly filtered before bottling.

  • SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS

    An excellent gourmet wine that pairs well with Red Meat Dishes like Beef Fillet, Roasted Lamb or Seared Duck Breast.
