This wine is the perfect accompaniment to classic hearty fare such as roast beef or lamb. The connoisseur’s preferred red blend.


Taste:

Taste:

Highly concentrated grapes with intense flavour of each cultivar are hand-selected to produce this expressive and full-bodied wine. The three cultivars are blended after 6 months and allowed to age for a further 18 months in new French oak. This wine is produced only in exceptional years and rarely exceeds 20 barrels. One can expect highly concentrated flavours of black forest berries infused with spice and vanilla. Extended skin contact and ageing in have contributed to the wine's complexity.
