BEST TROPHY

 

Moderate colour density, clean and bright hue. Very charming nose with sweet-sour plums and integrated toasty oak. The palate is savoury, well structured, with a good backbone of acidity bringing freshness and length. A delightful wine.

GOLD MEDAL

Rich density of colour and a fresh hue for its age, this wine is an
eclectic blend that somehow manages to respect all 7 varieties within. The palate has intense fruits, seamless but very present tannins, and a long and balanced finish due to the great acidity.
