Bronze Medal winner - Decanter World Wine Awards October 2011. The term Crianza means that the wine has been aged for a minimum of 2 years after the harvest of which at least 6 months is in oak. This is an excellent value crianza with lovely fruit driven complexity and lots of dark berries and american oak influence giving balance and structure to the wine. This is a big wine, dark rich and mouth-filling and definitely not for the fainthearted. .
Ageing Potential: 3-5 Years
Deep ruby red wine with pronounced developed bouquet of mature autumn berry fruits, damsons and black cherries with a spicy twist. Dry, firm and full bodied with good fruit attack and a long lingering robust finish. Delicious wine.
