TASTING NOTES:
The perspective with this wine was to express the fresh red fruit characteristic of Cinsaut with very subtle and accessible tannins/extract. Aromas of red fruit, almost strawberry like were not overpowered with secondary oak flavours and for that reason it was matured for only 6 months in older 225lt barrels.

SERVING SUGGESTION:
Most enjoyable with pasta and mild cheeses or to enjoy on its own.
