Regular price £45.00
Mendel vineyard: 980 m.a.s.l. Finca Drummond, Lujan De Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina.
Colour: Intense, bright red, violet at the rim. On the nose: Complex, elegant and very intense. The wine displays a mix of fresh aromatic red fruit such as black cherries, raspberries and blackberries. Spice touches and liquorice hints contribute complexity. The ageing in French oak masterfully integrates subtle vanilla and caramel nuances.
On the palate: full-bodied meaty flavours of black fruits and dried fruits. Good tannin and acidity. The aromas on the palate are harmonious and persistent. It is a balanced, refreshing and very easy-to-drink wine which boasts a lingering finish.
Ageing 12 months in French oak (1⁄3 in new ones, 1⁄3 in
second-use ones and 1⁄3 in third-use ones).
