This classic Bordeaux variety has never received its due recognition. It produces wines that are deeply coloured with intense sweet fruit and velvety tannins – everything a good wine should be. It can be viticulturally challenging and perhaps this is why it is more commonly used as a blending variety, but grown on the right site it can yield amazing results.
It is a full bodied richly flavoured wine with intense sweet fruit. This wine is juicy and fleshy with noticeable oak that adds just an element of grip and structure to this otherwise silky soft wine.
