Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Intense purple and bright in color. Seductive nose of small red fruits, but also coriander and bay leaf. Fresh and silky, the aromas follow through on to the mouth and are prolonged by notes of liquorice and spices. A friendly, supple wine with well rounded tannins with good persistence.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) The grapes are harvested manually, then de-stemmed, lightly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. 20% of the wine is aged in 2- to 3-year-old oak for nine months before bottling.
