Grapes yielding a mere 1½ bottles are selectively hand picked off vines grown to very special soils, complex silts, alluvial sands, a high percentage of clay and a conglomerate rich in minerals, unique influences of terroir which are recognizable in the finished wines, all very similar to those found in Bordeaux. Berries are further sorted upon arrival to the Biserno wineworks, de-stemmed, gently crushed and vinified for three to four weeks at 28C before being treated to full malolactic in a combination of barrels and fermenters. Matured twelve months in a selection of French oak barriques and vats, before the final assemblage, bottling and a further six months ageing under the Biserno cellars before release. Alcohol 14.5%
Deep bright ruby red in colour. Intense nose with ripe berries, dark chocolate and spicy oak. The concentration of fruit is supported by fine, ripe tannins, lending structure and balance for a harmonious wine with a splendid, generous middle palate before along and elegant finish.
