Other vintages

Bright, dense crimson red hue. This vintage is more mature than the 2012 with black and red fruit aromas such as strawberry, blackcurrant and blackberry. It is smooth and fruity on the palate, with a good balance between structure and elegance. Nice silky tannins and a rich, delicious finish with notes of liquorice, spice and herbs. The 2013 is a more complex and substantial wine than previous vintages.
