2019 Equinox

Description

A powerful Provence red wine, balancing between the intense spicy aromas from the Syrah, and the intensity and complexity coming from the Cabernet Sauvignon and the ageing and vinification process. After some time to breathe, Equinox will fully reveal itself.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have known an integral winemaking method in 500L barrels, bringing the wood’s complexity, while impacting as less as possible the aromas from the grapes.

A wine already ready to drink, but also worth waiting a few year before opening!
