Garnet red wine with an intense perfumed mélange of red and black fruits with cedar and oak undertones. On the palate, the fruit / oak balance is harmonious with soft, firm tannins, cassis and plum flavours producing a wine of excellent structure. The fruit lingers long on the palate.
Bordeaux-style blend. Harvesting done by hand, followed by grape sorting. Cold soaking for 48 hours. Each varietal was fermented separately with great attention to quality, to ensure optimal development in profile and character for each wine. Extended skin contact followed fermentation allowing for better extraction from skins. Each wine was matured separately for 14 months in 225l French oak barrels. After blending and filtration, bottling took place in January 2011.
