MORE INFORMATION:
A long skin fermentation with lots of aeration is followed by oak maturation for 12 months in 225ℓ French oak barrels. A mid-palate of sweet raspberry and red plum is complemented by chocolate flavours from careful oak aging. This wine is beautifully smooth with fine, mouth-filling tannins.

This wine pairs well with duck, lamb, sirloin steak and pastas as well as being a delicious partner to chocolate and mint desserts.
