The EXCUSE

 

This is a must have wine with a malicious taste. It will adapt to any situation. This wine is to be shared with friends and will be best suited with appetizers or even during a good meal.

With a deep garnet color and shine, this wine offers notes of cooked fruits and black cherries. On the palate it has a nice fullness but still leaves room for silky tannins. We also find a fine balance between structure and delicacy.

THE HARVEST

The harvest period is very spread out. From early September to mid-October.

THE PROCESS OF FERMENTATION

Each grape variety is harvested and made into wine separately. A cold maceration time is applied before the alcoholic fermentation. Fermentation begins spontaneously because of the native yeasts. The extractions are carried out by a light reassembly during the first days. The wine macerates for about ten days after alcoholic fermentation.

MATURING

8 months in a concrete tank
