Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is made from vineyards older than 60 years with a plant by plant selection. The fermentation is done in small capacity casks, devatting to new barrels where the fermentation is finished. Malolactic fermentation continues in the barrels during spring of the following year. Ageing continues for 18 months in new French Tronçais oak barrels. Practically opaque in the glass, yet the purity of its colour is easy to see. Only around the rim, where the wine merges with the glass, can you see the unchanged purple colour of a wine which has evolved very little. In the mouth it leaves a thick sensation, one could say it is one of the few wines where the sense of feel has such an important role. The first impression in the mouth is of stewed fruit or jam and hints of honey. After a few seconds, wild berries raspberries and blueberries appear. The power of the fruit makes it hard to appreciate the spicy component from high quality wood which only really comes through in the retro-nasal stage and in an aftertaste with subtle brushstrokes which are there but do not want to stand out.
