Vinification:

At their ideal point of maturity, grapes were manually harvested, destemmed and submitted to prolonged fermentation on skins in stainless-steel vats. Following fermentation, the wine was matured in French-oak barrels for a period of 18 months. Following its bottling, the wine continued to mature in-bottle for several months before its release. 3,300 bottles were produced in total.

Aroma:

An intense aroma, combining fresh fruit with more mature aromas, as well as hints of vanilla, coconut and chocolate, typical of its ageing in oak wood.

Tasting Notes:

In the mouth, its body is well balanced by its acidity and alcohol, with a prolonged finish, proving a fine accompaniment to well-seasoned red meat dishes.
