Grape varierty: 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet.
Production area: Vineyards at an altitude of 250 - 430m a.s.l.; south-west facing site morainal and alluvial soils with eroded porphyry.
Yield: 40 hl per hectare.
Vinification: The fermentation takes place with the crushed grapes and is followed by a skin-maceration for a further 7-10 days. The wine is then transferred into oak barriques where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. In the spring the two grape-varieties are blended in together and the final blend is racked into small oak casks where it refines for 14 months. The wine is then lightly filtered, bottled and aged in bottled for a further year before release.
Description: Deep red in colour; with a bouquet of ripe berry fruit, cassis and a hint of well integrated oak; black cherries and spices on the palate, underpinned by assertive but supple tannins; full-bodied, fine balanced, rich and long.
Matching: Superb with rare roast beef and all the trimmings, rich casseroles, game and mature cheeses.
Serving temperature: 16 - 18°C.
Ageing potential: 10 - 15 years.
Bottle to: 1,5 liters, magnum bottle.
