An unusual and unpleasant bouquet, a cross between pencil shavings, armpit and barnyard. Sweet, bitter and acrid with a bit of burning tire to balance it out. Guess I'll use this one for cooking.


Winemaker's Notes:

'Lacrima' is a small and ancient grape variety named for the characteristic drops that appear on ripe bunches. Grapes are harvested in the middle of October and alcoholic fermentation is on the skins for 10 to 12 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in small stainless steel vats, thereafter the wine is allowed to age in the bottle for 3 months prior to release. The wine itself is an intensive ruby red colour with violet hues. There are typical hints of roses and violets on the nose. On the palate the wine is complex with a firm structure, and is round and fruity. The finish is dry and long. This will compliment game and other rich meats where its firm structure will help to balance the flavours throughout the dish.
