Winemaker's Reserve: One of the winemaker's biggest challenges is the selection of a region of each grape variety. The journey to discover the best region for each variety has led to this new high end Special Reserve series of wines. This journey became possible due to the extensive high quality vines planting of the winery in the last years and a hard work at the winery. We believe that each wine in this series demonstrates how unique and impressive can be the combination between the right soil and climate to the grapes grown there. Aging: 18 months in oak barrels, mostly French oak
Tasting notes: With a deep ruby hue, the wine presents a wild and intense nose of raspberry, cassis, eucalyptus and Tabaco. On the palate the red berries are dominant with Liquorice, chocolate, firm and tight body and lingering finish.
