From the Winery
A multi-awarding wine to relish now and over the next few years. Perfect served with hard cheeses and hearty red meat dishes.
Sourced from 21 years old vines planted rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were handpicked in early-April, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tank. Fermentation took place over 19 days with selected yeast, after this the wine was transferred into French oak barrels (four years old). The wine was kept on lees contact for a further four months. Finally, after six months the wine was racked, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
