Tasting Notes The nose is fruity and open, mostly on the cherry. On the palate, a nice acidity is present and at the same time, the tannins are elegant and rich. The wine has a spicy finish with a hint of nutmeg.

Winemaking After sorting in the vineyard and in the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and then directly put in tank. Cold pre-fermentation maceration is performed for 5 days. The spontaneous fermentation then starts. The grapes will stay in tank for roughly 3 weeks during alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then put in oak barrels (no new oak) by gravity for 12 months. No filtration or fining is performed.
