The bouquet is of vibrant dark cheery fruit and clean spirit. The palate is full of vibrant fruit characters and has a firm tannin and drier finish. The flavours linger on the palate and the wine has a lovely soft fruit finish.
Made from Durif grapes grown in our own vineyard. The grapes were harvested on 2nd March 2018, destemmed and then fermented in open vats with hand-plunging. The wine was fortified using grape spirit and then aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling. The final alcohol is 19.5% with a Baume of 3.2.
Great with dark chocolate desserts and blue cheeses.
Savour after a long leisurely lunch for two. Sitting in your most comfortable armchair by a roaring fire.
