  • Vinification

    Selected hand-picked grapes from high quality vineyards were fermented separately in tanks with different types of yeast. Pumping over was done several times per day during fermentation. Up to 2 weeks skin contact was allowed for more complexity. All three cultivars matured separately for 15 months in 1st, 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. Selected barrels were blended prior to bottling.

  • Tasting Notes

    A elegant Bordeaux-style blend showing pure aromas of cherries, plums and cedarwood. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, fresh and lively with bright fruitiness. This concentrated, medium bodied wine will gain in complexity with further maturation.
