Dark, deep red colour. Very complex nose with blackberry, black current, prune liquorice, cedar, cloves and hints of coffee bean. A Very elegant wine, with ripe refined tannins and lingering finish. Excellent balance between fruit and oak. A wine with exceptional ageing potential.
Only grapes from the best vineyard blocks are used for this special wine. Each varietal is harvested and matured separately for 15 months in 300 liter French oak barrels (30% first fill, 15% third fill, 30% fourth fill and 25% in older barrels). Barrels are tasted, the best selected and the final blend is aged for a further 3 months.
