The style of this wine was determined in the vineyard, with careful attention being given to green harvesting, canopy management as well as crop management. Soft yet voluptuous with intense, succulent flavours that explode on the palate and awaken your taste buds. Rich and lush on the nose with juicy mulberries, a touch of earthiness and lovely violet perfume that unfurls in your glass with time. The palate is layered with elegant flavours of black cherry and cassis which linger with refreshing herbal notes. Silky tannins envelop and entice. Purity of fruit and a dry structure define this superb example of cultivar.
