Vinification

Late harvest, hand-picked with a short period between the picking and fermentation – 2 hours maximum. Beginning of fermentation in large fermentation tanks with natural yeast picked out from the same grapes harvested during pre-harvesting (5 %). Maceration takes place from 3 to 4 weeks until the completion of fermentation until the cap of grape skins sinks to the bottom of the tank and clears the wine naturally. Fermentation is completed in 220L Slovenian oak barriques for 5 years on the lees without decanting. Until it is bottled no sulphur or any other conservation additive is used. 

Tasting and pairing

Decanter carefully. Dark red in colour. Full of cherry and plum, with a light sense of anise. Pine wood notes, ripe red and black berries. Fresh, good acidity, medium depth with a medium to long finish. Definitely a main course dinner wine.
