    Users Who Logged This Wine

    Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Grenache (35%) and Syrah (10%).
    Average age of vines is 20 years. Average yield after green harvest 25 HL/Ha
    (1.3 T/acre).
    Grapes are picked by hand and sorted out in small cases. They are
    de-stemmed, crushed and tipped into uncoated concrete tanks.
    After 3 to 4 days of cold maceration to extract fruit aromas, the
    fermentation starts naturally using indigenous yeast and last for 10 days
    (Max temperature 28°C (82°F)). During this period we alternate délestage
    with punch down to extract maximum grape potential. Once the wine
    finishes fermenting, the maceration process continues for approximately
    10 more days.
    The wine is then aged for 12 month, 30% in oak barrels where the malolactic
    fermentation starts, 70% in uncoated concrete tank.

    Tasting notes
    Colour : The robe is garnet with purple refletion.
    Nose: Fresh and intense on red fruit aromas with spicy notes.
    Mouth: Fluid, well balanced between roundness and tanins.

    Wine and Food pairings
