Fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 20°C in open fermentation tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and gently pumping over.

It was aged for 18 months in 500 liters French oak puncheons.

Food & Wine Pairing

Vietnamese roasted duck breast with sauce, grilled or roasted red meat

A complex and concentrated blend of fruit aromas with spice, black pepper and ironstone flintiness with hints of oak. Vibrant fruit gives an elegance of weight to the front palate. Blackberry, red olive, ironstone and the use of subtle, spicy French oak give complexity. A sweet core of red currant and plum flavoured fruit complements the fine-grained tannins, which gives the wine length.
