Bright ruby red in colour. The aromas are generous and fruit-fuelled with sour cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. The mouthfeel is lean, plush, and harmonious. It pairs superbly with cured cold meats, semi mature cheeses, roasts, red and white meat dishes.

Winemaking and ageing: The grapes are manually harvested and delicately destemmed. The must macerates and ferments with the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Pump overs are performed regularly to extract supple tannins and colour from the skins. The wine is racked into new tanks where alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed. The wine stays on the lees until bottling.
Serving temperature 16-18 °C
