The bouquet shows forthcoming ripe cherry aromas with a spiciness and touch of mint. Soft, smooth and velvety tannins are balanced on the palate by a firm structure and lingering, succulent finish. Maturation potential 5-10 years from vintage.
Five days fermentation in open tanks with temperature control and regular manual plunging and occasional pump-overs.
The wine was matured for 18 months barrel maturation in 225 litre French oak (30% new).
