Tasting Notes

Importer Note:


The 25 to 30 years old Cabernet Sauvignon (48%) and Merlot (52%) are harvested at full maturity, producing an average yield of 48 hectolitres per hectare. On arrival at the cellar the grapes will be sorted and destemmed. Before the fermentations, a skin maceration at a cold temperature will be carried out for 4 to 5 days to extract extra colour, flavours and improve the overall structure of the wine. Then the fermentations in stainless steel vats will last 3 weeks for the Merlot and 4 weeks for the Cabernet Sauvignon at 28oc. The two grape varieties are then aged separately in French oak barrels for 12 months with 25% of new oak each year. After ageing, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will be blended together. The production is about 3,300 cases.


Importer Note:
