pays d'oc (languedoc, france)
the vines are grown on different soils in the languedoc region in the south of france on the foothills of the cévennes mountains and in the aude valley. the 15-year-old vines are cultivated at an average altitude of 150 metres on acid soils with pebbles in the valleys.
bunches are de-stemmed then undergo a long maceration period at low temperature (in order to obtain a long, full and rich wine), with pumping-over, followed by malolactic fermentation. the wine is aged in vats for 6 months with approx 10% of the wines aged in french oak barriques to give further complexity to the wine.
a medium to full-bodied cabernet sauvignon with juicy blackcurrant and black cherry flavours, and a hint of cigar box on the palate. the tannins are ripe and well-balanced, adding length and further depth to the wine.
