Notes from the Winemaker:
The color of this wine is as bright as a beautiful ruby ring. It has an intense, herbaceous and spicy bouquet – with woody scents – fruity with hints of the underwood. Delicate on the palate, velvety and pleasantly dry.

Food accompaniment: Equine steaks and roast red meats, good with game. Excellent also with seasoned cheese.

Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Grapes are harvested exclusively by hand , stalks are removed and the fruit undergoes approx. 15 days’ fermentation at a temperature of 25° Celsius (77° Fahrenheit). Subsequently, the red wine is aged in barriques and tonneaux, both new and used (maximum 3 year) for about 12-14 months, then blended and left to rest in stainless steel tanks for about a month previous to bottling.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling (2013 Vintage):
"Lovely balanced fruit with fine tannins and a savory finish. Medium-bodied, this has a pretty combination of fruit and citrus undertones. Drink now." - (November 21, 2016)
