Tasting Notes:

The wine has a rich, cherry colour. The fragrance of the wine is an exotic mixture of spice, red fruit and meat. On palate the wine shows finesse and elegance with integrated, dry tannins, an attractive saltiness and crisp minerality. A well defined, medium bodied wine with great class.

One of our core beliefs is that wine is an encapsulation of what nature does best. To this extent the less we interfere the better. We want the principles of sustainable and organic agriculture to play a significant role in our vineyards. We employ variations of biodynamic agriculture which we call Bioviticulture.

Our terroir provides a unique combination of geography, climate and soil types. They conspire with carefully selected varietals and clones to produce superb quality grapes.

The bunches and berries are sorted by hand before being gently crushed and destemmed. After 3 days of cold soaking the fermenting must is then pumped over three times a day.

The wine spends a total of 19 months in 300L French oak barrels, 25% of which are new.

Food pairing
