Product details

    • Hugely complex, this wine has concentrated aromas and flavours, married to wonderful freshness. It is lively and juicy - like biting into a just-ripe cherry that bursts in your mouth - and yet is far from straighforward, with intriguing nuances of spices, Mediterranean herbs, olives and well-integrated oak. This is irresistible now - and even better if you decant it first - but if you can, keep some bottles back for 2...5...7...or even 10 years, as it has both the guts and the balance to gain even more complexity with time.

Winemaking

From plots of old (70+ years), low yielding vines with up to 30 different grape varieties are kept back for ageing in French and American oak barrels for up to 18 months. A high proportion of the grapes used in the blend are foot trodden in lagares. The wine may be drunk soon after its release but has the depth and concentration to develop in bottle over the long term. It is a complex, powerful wine with great intensity and a richly textured palate. It is always bottled without any fining or filtration.

Food recommendation

Lamb or kid, seasoned with rosemary, garlic and olive oil, and grilled outside over charcoal.
