Fruit is harvested at lower sugar baumes, grapes are destemmed and crushed into open top fermenters for vinification at higher temperatures of at least 28°C. Batches are pumped over and plunged daily until fermented to dry, components are pressed and racked off gross lees to a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads and puncheons. Alcohol 12.5%
Intense colour. Bouquet of sour cherries, geranium florals and a seasoning of richly piquant spice.

Serve slightly chilled and match with olive bay leaf recipes, veal and light rustic fare.
