Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red garnet

Aroma

A rush of intense ripe red fruits comes first to the nose with expressive notes of dark cherry, strawberry and Satsuma plum. The bouquet is then completed with aromas of blond caramel, vanilla and peppercorns, along with subtle hints of smoky oak and cocoa nibs

Palate

A bright attack of ripe plums, black and red cherry leading to delicate notes of smoky oak and liquorice and hints of wild game and forest floor. The structural and fine tannins combined with a well-balanced acidity provide a beautiful mouthfeel

Food Matching

We recommend lean meat: beef tartare, venison carpaccio. It is also an excellent match with oyster mushrooms marinated in truffle butter or to accompany a delicious chocolate mud cake

Cellaring

This wine has such a structure and intensity that it can be cellared for up to 20-30 years

Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Merlot 9%, Petit Verdot 3%, Shiraz 3%
