Supple tannins and fresh acidity frame layered flavors of kirsch and damson plum preserves, with lots of ground spices and an iron-tinged mineral note, while fragrant tea leaf and mocha notes wind through the wine and linger on the finish. Drink now through 2025.A.N.

Wine maker notes
During the harvest the grapes are carefully selected by a qualified team of people and carried in boxes. The grapes are dried for about 3-4 months in our drying rooms. Depending on the vintage, from the end of January to the end of February crushing and destemming. Fermentation takes place in small casks, max 5000 litres. The temperature is raised to 10 C, then it stays at around 15 C. Very long maceration, over 40 days with 2 weekly pumping over. After two decanting, when the wine is clean (may/June) its poured in wood: new French barriques and of second, third year for some years. Bottle fining for about one year.
