Classic aromas of blackcurrant, plum and raspberry leaf, cigar box and freshly turned earth. Elegant, fine and long. An explosion of summer fruits and complex earthy notes suggesting a long future. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented slowly for 2-3 weeks extracting bright flavours and elegant tannins from the skins. Following pressing the wines were left to mature in 300L French oak hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling in April 2018.

Loads of leafy freshness with currants, fresh mulberries and blackberries all marking its varietal status while the regional imprint ensures an elegance thanks to its fine-grained tannins and lighter body.

Dark chocolate, blackcurrant, a pleasant tobacco and leafy character. Medium-bodied, fine powdery tannin, attractive ‘adult’ flavour, in that it falls to savoury and gently herbal, rather than simple fruit sweetness. Crisp finish. So nicely turned out and good to drink. Thumbs up.
