More info

Elegant wine with great depth. On the nose it expresses aromas of dark berries, flowers and some earthiness. The palate is dominated by black fruit, plum and savoury meat flavours. Perfectly judged oak influence is precise and supportive.

This wine fermented with selected yeast at a controlled temperature with regular punching down and pumping over (5x/day), skin contact of 16 days after fermentation was allowed. Free flow and press juice stayed together. Malolactic took place in barrels with sulphur addition only after that for the first time. Matured for 18 months in 225 liter French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% 2nd fill. Filtration was done prior to bottling but no cold stabilization.
