Limpid, bright, reddish cherry pink. On the nose, red fruit aromas of blood orange, floral aromas of rose, spicy aromas of pink pepper and cinnamon, and a faint earthy note. Soft and rounded attack, dry. On the palate, juicy fruitiness and elegant acidity mellowly weaved together. The back palate has a touch of pink pepper spiciness. The colour of the wine originates from direct press of red grapes, much like white winemaking, and from saignée of red juice from red winemaking. Both fermentation and maturation occurred in oak vats, resulting in a fruity and a pleasant wine.
