Grapes are destemmed and soft-crushed before fermented in stainless steel tanks for two weeks on the skins, with frequent pumping over the cap. After malolactic fermentation the wine is matured for 18 months in older French oak barrels.
The Rouge shows a deep ruby colour with garnet highlights on the rim. The generous bouquet suggests blackcurrant, cedar with scents reminiscent of red berries, spices and vanilla. The wine is amply structured; full, round and smooth on the palate with rich fruit and length of flavour. An elegant wine that will mature with time in the bottle.
