A classic elegance Bordeaux style of wine has a deep intense dark ruby colour. The nose shows a vibrant profusion of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and vanilla characters with a good balance of ripe fruits and soft tannins on the palate. The mouth feel is a complexity of rich floral flavors with a broad mid-palate and a long finish.

Roast lamb with rosemary is a perfect match for this elegant wine, as is oxtail and roast chicken with butternut.

about the harvest: From these low-yield terroir-specific sites only the best grapes were hand-picked at optimum physiological ripeness to ensure fine, pure fruit reaching the winery.

in the cellar : 

The Merlot and Petit Verdot segments were exposed to aerated pump-overs in an open-top fermenter. For the Cabernet Sauvignon, the traditional punch-down method was employed with the cap punched four times a day ensuring a more aggressive extraction. These two options were kept separate for the duration of the ageing process Malolactic fermentation and fermentation took place in new French oak barrels.

Barrel-tastings were done every six months where we focused on the wine’s interaction with the new wood, and the wine was racked three times over the 24-month maturation period. The final blend was 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 12% Petit Verdot.
