Aromas of plum, black fruit, mocha and a hint of dark chocolate. Ripe and full-flavoured on the palate with supple tannins, notes of blackberry and wild plum, which follow through to a long and juicy finish.
Goes well with grilled beef or lamb or robust stew. For a veggie alternative try with spinach and lentil casserole.

2015 was a superb year in the vineyard with good levels of rainfall in the winter and a relatively dry growing season, 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.
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.
