Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Elegant and perfumed on the nose with aromas of black fruits with some delicate floral notes.
Palate On the palate there are flavours of strawberries, black cherries, red currants and red apples. Dry with with juicy acidity and ripe well balanced tannins. Red and black fruit flavours with good mouth feel. On the finish the flavours become more leather and spice infused with a nice peppery flourish.

Making Techniques The harvest is crushed, usually destalked and then placed in a vat. The alcoholic fermentation, which is often generated by introducing certain yeasts, is carried out at a temperature between 25 and 32°C in order to extract the aromas and ensure the wine has a good structure. The wine remains in the vat about 30 days, and conserved in storage. The must is then pressed, after the juice is allowed to run off from the vat. The free-run juice is then usually mixed in with the grape juice. No oaks in this wine.
