This wine is matured in new French oak barrels for 18-20 months depending on the vintage, and is then bottle fermented for a further 24-36 months, which enables the wine to fully develop its complex bottle fermentation characteristics.
This is a medium bodied wine style that is best served slightly chilled.
Typically the bouquet displays blackberries, dark cherries, and raspberries with hints of yeast and spice, and the palate is of intense lifted dark cherries, blackberries and sweet spice.
This wine style is perfectly balanced and has a soft, lingering after palate which makes it exceptional drinking early and equally well suited to medium term cellaring.
This is a wine to celebrate special occasions. We suggest serving this wine with roast turkey, ham, duck, game meats and pre-dinner treats including terrines and pates.
