This white wine, fermented and aged in french barrels, offers intense aromas of pine resin, fresh melon and grilled almonds. A lively attack leads into a full flavoured, powerful mid palate where the velvety texture gives a wonderful depth to this wine.
Almost opaque ruby colour; blackberry nose; dry palate with balance of sweet-tasting fruit and soft, complex tannins; has layers of smoky, spicy, berry flavours. Sounds like an anonymous "modern" wine? Not at all, this has a hint of terroir rusticity which adds character.
Amber core with a bronze rim; shows mellow walnut, warm spices, cocoa and prunes on the nose. Mellow attack on the palate, but not cloying thanks to a delicious freshness and texture.
