Winemaker notes

Wine color is dark cherry with burgundy hues.

Deep and fragrant on the nose it requires a little time as it is initially shy. Your patience will be rewarded with fresh red and black fruit which will be turning riper as it slowly opens up. You will also notice intense pine strokes combined with delicate scents of blue flowers and the elegance of graphite.

The mouth combines high acidity which provides delicious crispiness with a silky smooth touch. It is full-bodied, fruity and savoury at the same time with a hint of saltiness.
