Regular punch downs of grapes with extended skin maceration. Matured in French oak barrels for 20 months. Cranberry, red berry and layers of fruit harmonize perfectly on the palate.

TASTE & AROMA

A wine with a layered fruit profile Red fruit, especially Cranberry, comes through strongly on the nose. This is followed by a complex, dense, juicy celebration on the palate where layers of fruit, wood, red berry and tomato cocktail harmonize together, creating the perfect marriage between Old and New world.

FOOD PAIRING
