First Vintage (Cabernet Sauvignon / Petit Verdot)
Winemaker’s notes: “The wine is packed with dark fruit flavors with subtle tannin for a long lingering finish. If I had to do it again I would change nothing.”
Maden vintage of 2011.
Low yielding vines (5-6 tons per hectare) were hand-picked in the early hours of the morning to ensure freshness and quality.
With optimally ripe grapes the wines were fermented in open stainless steel fermenters with regular and rigorous punch-downs during fermentation. After fermentation the wines were aged for eighteen months in small French bariques.
The wine has a deep ruby and purple colour which derives mostly from the Petit Verdot. Classic Cabernet aromas of black cherry, current, kirsch and tobacco stands out on the nose. On the palate the Petit Verdot gives backbone to the Cabernet with flavours of cocoa and coffee. The wine finishes with smooth dry tannens that lingers.
