 Winemaking & Storage :

The grapes were carefully hand-picked in the morning. After sorting and destemming the mash was cold macerated for 50 hours in stainless tanks. Fermentation then took place during about 10 days. Lean pressing after 3 week when the wine was poured into 225 and 300 l oak barrels, about 25 % new. After malolactic fermentation, racking and fining, bottling was done after 16 months in the barrels.

The wine rested in the bottles for 8 months before labelling and release.

 Alcohol: 14.5 %

Tasting notes :A pure dense aroma of dark berries, fruit, black olives and lavender on the nose. Rich, intense fruity taste of darak berries with an elegant structure of acidity and tannins in sophisticated balance generating a long pleasing finish on the palate. Very Shiraz!

Serve with Dishes with beef, lamb, venison and tasty suasages. Stews, pasta dishes, tasty sallads and cheese platters.
