PRODUCT INFORMATION

2011 was noteable for a relatively rainy winter, which helped to replenish groundwater. During the spring, rainfall was slightly below average. There were two spikes of hot weather, one in April and the other, significantly hotter, in May. Temperatures during June and July were slightly below average, but in August the temperatures oscillated between very high and abnormally low, with rain throughout the whole region on 21st August and 1st September. These factors made for a very balanced and long ripening period.

TASTING NOTES

An almost opaque ruby colour. The aroma of this wine has great complexity and intensity, with prominent notes of spices, like black pepper and ginger, along with hints of balsamic, such as cedar and tobacco box, splashes of black fruit and a dash of cocoa resulting from its excellent maturation. On the palate, it has firm tannins, a lively acidity, further notes of black fruit and spices, such as black pepper, that invite a long and harmonious finish.

HOW TO SERVE

Up until its second year, this wine requires no special treatment. After this time, it is recommended that the bottle be stored vertically a day before opening and decanted prior to consumption. This wine pairs wonderfully with cheeses, rich chocolatey desserts, fresh fruit and red/wild fruit tarts.
