These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years. The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity
Amaretto on the dry nose, with a bit of vegetation and marshmallow. Big red fruit body with nice acid and tannin balance, and pineapple on the finish. Interesting and fun to drink.
red and black pepper on the nose with a little spice, currants, and menthol. the palate extends to spicy black pepper, black fruit. fruit more prevalent on palate than the nose. very nice!
