Organic/biodynamic/vegan Organic, Vegan
How is the wine made? The wine undergoes several months aging in steel vats.
Tasting Notes The nose leads with fresh blackcurrant and plum. A gentle cedar, savoury spice follows on the palate, which is well-rounded with firm tannins and well-balanced acidity.
Food Pairing Cabernet Sauvignon is a natural partner to rich red meats, but also pairs well with hard cheeses and robust vegetables: mushrooms, aubergines and earthy pulses would be ideal.
