Fragrant fruity aromas, particularly plum, followed by delicate mint and green tea notes.
On the palate it is full-bodied and smooth with a long finish.
Vineyard The vineyards lie at 45-60 metres above sea level, with a rocky limestone soil. Cuttings were supplied by the on-site nursery.
Winery The grapes were destemmed, gently crushed, and fermented in stainless steel for between ten and fifteen days at 28-30°C. The wine was then transferred to oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, racked, blended and returned to barrel for eight months' ageing.
