Straw coloured and clear with light golden reflections.
The colour is deep ruby with garnet reflections. The nose opens with ripe oaky notes, vanilla and grilled hazelnuts and expresses hints of black stewed fruit, licorice and nutmeg. In the mouth, the initial taste is rich and full with elegant tannins present. Gentle extraction and ageing for 18 months in French oak barrels
(30 % new) brings a delicate texture intensified with menthol and pepper flavours in the mid-palate. The finish is smooth and well balanced with a slight refreshing fruit acidity and ripe tannins.
