Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine full of strength and complexity. It characteristic scent of forest berries, peppers and liquorice is underscored by its harmonic acidity and hefty tannins, which are an important condition for long life and successful maturing.
Deep, quite intense, cherry red colour. Very pronounced, clean aroma with fruity notes of cherry and blackcurrant. Also spice notes (white pepper) and oak. Full bodied, with good fruit concentration on the palate. Long finish, accompagnied by tannins that are well integrated in the structure of the wine. Still rather youthful.

This elegant and fruity Chardonnay is cultivated on clayey and calcareous grounds. The fermentation takes place in durmast barrels through the malolactic process. After that, the wine is left to mature for 11 months. Ripe fruits fragrances together with the full-bodied taste, the well-balanced structure and the pleasant perfume, are the characteristics of this wine.
Brilliant, gold yellow colour with a green shimmer. Very rich, complex, still quite closed aroma. Burgundian style with a delicate creaminess, some toasty oak and ripe tropical fruit. Touches of vanilla and roasted almonds. Quite rich, well-structured though elegant flavour, harmonious, with a pungent, fresh acidity to match the depth of the fruit and the oaky backbone.
