In spite of the difficult spring, the late autumn of the 2012 vintage allowed the grapes to ripen beautifully with lovely colours. The yield was quite low this year. This resulted in superb concentration and excellent keeping qualities over time. The colour is a deep, brilliant red with purplish blue glints. The nose is very aromatic with spices and earthy aromas. It is full-bodied and rich in the mouth, smooth with great tannins, and excellent length, makng it a good wine for laying down.
