"Featured in The New York Times: 20 Wines Under $20: Reds for Winter Moods and Foods"

2015 was a superb year in the vineyard with good levels of rainfall in the winter and a relatively dry growing season, hence the low level of precipitation meant disease incidence was low; a relatively early veraison in July led to an early harvest in September before the onset of rain in the middle of the month, fruit was in optimum condition and picked well before the rain, in order to maintain the high levels of acidity, balance and freshness in the wines.

The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness, with high acidity contents and balanced sugar levels. After selection, the fruit was 100% destemmed and the fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with 8 to 15 days of skin maceration. 15% of the wine was aged in used French oak barrels for 12 months.

TASTING NOTES: Medium brick red colour, with a wonderful fresh, active aroma, and a clean precise aroma of dark cherries with some floral undertones and a spicy, balsamic rustic profile. On the palate, it is more robust than the previous year, with a markedly rustic profile. Once again a superb drinkability owing to its balance and elegance, this wine very much exhibits the uncomplicated style that we set out to achieve.
