Case of 12 bottles
AOC Bordeaux Supérieur
Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, hand-picked when the grapes were healthy and at peak ripeness. 2014 was a challenging vintage through the summer months, but was saved by many warm and dry days prior to harvest.
Fermentation (by plot/variety) is maintained between 21 and 25 degrees celsius in stainless steel tanks in order to retain the purity of the fruit, with short and frequent pump-overs to help build expressive and full-bodied wines. Ageing is in French oak barrels (12 months) followed by 4 more months in tank before bottling in April 2016. Suitable for vegan/vegetarian diets. 13.5% alc./vol.. R.S. 0.3 gr./L..
Our tasting note: Deep, ruby/purple colour. Refined aromas and flavours of ripe, dark berries (blackberry) and Bing cherry, with subtle notes of vanilla spice, chocolate, roasted nuts, and cedar. Full and round with soft tannins, balanced acidity, and a long, inviting finish.
Menu matches: A great pairing with grilled and roasted meat dishes and earthier style vegetarian options. But also a delightful glass on its own.
