Rich burgundy red.
Rich burgundy red in colour with crimson after tones. This wine releases seductive aromas such as violets, wild berries, prunes, truffle and dark chocolate, and an array of mineral notes. It carries a medium body with vibrant, almost powdery fine tannins, and a long, curvy structure.
This wine would be best served with rich chicken cacciatore, braised duck, slow roasted lamb, seafood- based dishes, and any pizza containing anchovies or calamari.
Sourced from 10 years old vines planted rocky loam soils located, on the Central western slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 350 metres. The grapes were handpicked in late-March, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tanks. Fermentation took place over 19 days with selected yeast, after this the wine was transferred into French and Hungarian oak barrels (two and 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.
Deep black cherry
A deep, black cherry hue with spicy plum and pepper, and the aroma of mixed berries lead to a full, rich palate. Sweet blueberries and mulberries flavours are underscored by subtle anise and nutmeg integrating with the savoury oak and supple tannins. The obvious fruit flavours are harnessed by the elegant structure, making for a refined and aromatic Shiraz, with delightful drive. The long, lingering powdery tannins deliver a seamless, smooth finish.
An elegant cool climate Shiraz that is superb drinking now, yet can be savoured over the next decade.

With its rich, delicate flavours, this wine pairs beautifully with a Sunday roast lamb, an Italian casserole or eggplant parmigiana.
Fantastic now, but will also age gracefully for years.
