Tasting Hints

KEEPING:

Wine to keep between 2 and 5 years.

If you especially want to taste this wine’s fruitiness we advise drinking it within the first two years.

However, you may prefer to wait so as to enjoy the wine’s secondary aromas, in which case we suggest drinking it at between three and five years.

As with all wines, the temperature at which it’s kept will dictate how well it keeps. The ideal is between 12°C and 18°C.

TASTING:

Best served between 18°C and 19°C.

To enjoy it best, we advise you to drink this wine with a meal.

Open the bottle one or two hour(s) before serving.

The wine is even better if decanted, to allow its complex characteristics to emerge.
