Tasting Notes
The 2000 vintage was a very good one, the first half of August was extremely hot. The end of August and begining of September had perfect ripening conditions with a couple of days of rain at exactly the right time. The resultant wine is a deep ruby colour with notes of sweet black fruits on the palate combined with dried fruits and a touch of licourice. Very long on the finish with a fresh acidity to balance the sweetnes.
Food
Serve with mature cheeses.
