A new cellar owned by ‘British interests’ with an aim to produce low volume hand made wines that capture the best of Terra Alta.
Hand picked grapes fermented in stainless steel before 12 months in a mixture of old and new French oak barrels. The wine is bottled unfiltered.
A serious, intense red with plenty of backbone and smooth tannins. Ripe black fruits dominate the nose and palate, with notes of cedar and toffee.
