Rich, crimson red colour with dark violet after tones.
This wine releases intense and diverse aromas such as raspberries, plums, fresh cocoa beans, and mocha-like notes. It is a medium-bodied wine, carrying smooth and powdery fine tannins and a sensually round palate.
This wine would be best served with rich grilled red meats, prosciutto, scallops, grilled tuna and blue-vein cheese dishes.
Drink now, and will age gracefully.
Sourced from 21 years old vines planted rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were handpicked in early-April, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tank. Fermentation took place over 19 days with selected yeast, after this the wine was transferred into French oak barrels (four years old). The wine was kept on lees contact for a further four months. Finally, after six months the wine was racked, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
