Due to the small amount of fruit, we decided to ferment this wines in 1 ton bins. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 6 months in new and older barrels. This wine has intense fruit on the nose and the palate is spicy, with a slight hint of black pepper.
Nicely integrated tannins make this a very enjoyable wine.
