Bright and lively notes aromatic notes of blackcurrant and mulberry fruit follows through to the palate where they are joined by some classic black pepper spice and dark chocolate. The palate shows some early mouth-filling roundness before a subtle lattice tannin frame provides genuine structure, balance and control as the wine moves through the mouth.

This wine is fermented in stainless steel open fermenters before undergoing secondary malolactic fermentation in new and seasoned oak hogsheads. There is a focus on minimal handling and the use of oak for structural framing rather than imparting significant oak flavour. The wine is matured for 12-14 months in barrel before usually undergoing a light filtration and fining if deemed appropriate prior to bottling.
Pairs well with Cassoulet or a toasted ham and cheese sandwich.
