Blend of 1/3 Grenache, 1/3 Syrah and 1/3 Cabernet-Sauvignon.
Organic farming, manual harvest, this gorgeous red wine is made only from the free run juice, released by the grapes before pressing.
Aged in oak barrels for 24 months and cellared 5 years after harvest.
Ruby red with carmine hues. It looks like red velvet in a glass. A rich nose of black fruits and wild berries. Full-bodied, fruity, silky tannins, long lasting finish.
This is the very best red wine from Chateau Dalmeran, one of the top producer in the appellation Baux de Provence. You'll understand why after trying this one.
