Fermentation was completed in barrel, the wine was then matured in new American oak for eighteen months. Alcohol 13.50% Acidity 7.70g/L pH 3.38.
A crimson purple wine, aromas of saturated black fruits and mocha. A very powerful palate with blackcurrant fruit, malt oak and masses of ripe tannins. Winemaker comments by John Duval: A tremendous depth of dark crimson. The complex and stylish bouquet shows intense, sweet, dark fruits - stewed plum and cassis with integrated barrel ferment oak characters. Earthy rich nuances and tobacco complexities add further depth to the aromas. Highly defined and powerful, the full bodied palate has concentrated blackcurrant flavours complexed by integrated, sweet, strong oak and tannins that grip. The wine shows impeccable balance, sweetness of fruit and a long lingering finish, the hallmarks of a great wine.
