Tasting Notes: Deep cherry in colour with classic Syrah aromas of black fruits and Mediterranean herbs, mixed with delicate notes of French oak. A powerful, full-bodied red with great structure, an abundance of black fruit flavours, notes of earth and pepper, ripe tannins, great volume and overall balance. A full, rich and persistent finish.

More Info: This wine is made using Syrah grapes from the 35-year old trellised Syrah vines, grown on sandy soil at an altitude of 400 meters. The climate in the area is particularly dry with great variations in temperature between the summer and the winter, which is ideal for the fruit to reach its peak ripeness. The wine then spent twelve months’ aging in 500-liter French oak barrels.
