The nose is chock-full of fresh blackberries, cherries and dark chocolate sprinkled with spices. The palate is fresh and juicy, ripe red fruits mix with plums, blackcurrant, flowers and a twist of black pepper.
This wine is the combination of many individual parcels of wines that flowed down from senior wines in the dArenberg stable. It also includes parcels from a range of new growers.
Red winemaking at dArenberg is very traditional and simplistic. All of the reds wines are fermented in headed-down open fermenters prior to being pressed in our traditional basket-presses.
Matured in barriques and large casks prior to bottling at the winery.
