Alicante is a black grape variety native to Spain and renowned for producing colourful top-end wines that are prized for their ‘weight’, dense colour and phenolic content. Its alliance with Syrah, another black grape variety widely grown in the Languedoc, offers concentrated tannins and fruit.
For vinification the winemaker has chosen to carry out a hot pre-fermentation maceration, (destemmed and crushed grapes are heated up to 75°C during its 15 hours) to extract the deepest colour and increase aromas. This method gave this red wine its very fruity style.
An inky black colour, deep with purple reflections. On the nose, an array of elements jump out from very ripe crushed black fruits, thyme, fennel and spice. with a great intensity of sweet cherry fruit on the palate.
