We consider this vintge to be exceptional and are exremely proud of the resulting wine. Traditional methods of whole bunch, whole berry fermentaation for 10 months in French barreques has taken premium fruit to an elegant wine with distinct forest floor varietal characters.
Bouquet: A very complex bouquet with nuances of cherry, truffle and beetroot fruit wrapped up in cedar and ground coffee oak influences.
Palate: Supple and silky with strawberry, black cherry and truffle flavours. Green tea-like tannins give the palate great persistence.
Cellaring: Delicious now and will soften over the next 5 years.
Food: Enjoy with duck, veal, lamb and soft cheeses.
