Ageing : 20% of the wine is aged in oak barrels for 5 months. The type of oak is American – 1/3 new oak, 1/3 first use and 1/3 second use – this is in order to impact sublte oak flavours to the wine whilst retaining a lot of fruit.
Food pairing : Serve at 16°C with red and grilled meat, soft or strong cheeses.
