Batches are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments and a year's maturation.
Deep mulberry, purple hues. Powerful, lifted ripe berry fruit, vanilla and chocolate, French cocoa and American vanilla oak notes. Rich, juicy fruit, spiced berries and currant, dark chocolates and licorice, flavoursome, textural mouthfeel and a lingering savoury back palate.
