100% Pino tNoir from handpicked grapes; raised in oak casks.
Rich red in colour, the wine has red fruit aromas; in the mouth it is supple but well structured with fine tannins and a persistent finish.
15/16°C. It is recommended to decant recent vintages so as to enhance the aroma.
- The mild Winter meant that vegetation growth started early; we began debudding mid-April and with fine sunny weather the vine developed and flourished gradually in good conditions. The Summer was very dry which accelerated the maturing process with a lower yield but a high aromatic concentration for the Pinot Noir grape; for the Chardonnay however, the conditions were satisfactory for both growth and maturity. The grape harvest commenced on 20 August. The red wines are deep, bright in colour, they reflect red fruit together with full and elegant tannins.
