Winemaker's notes:

Teran 2015 displays a deep purple colour with clearly visible legs. On the nose it shows medium of what is a very youthful aromatic profile delivering plenty of red fruit notes such as raspberry, strawberry, cherries and spicy notes with black pepper and dried herbs dominating. Quite rich and ripe. With time some gentle layers of oak, caramel appear giving it extra dimension and complexity. Very dry on the palate with medium acidity and lovely texture. It is medium-full bodied with firm texture and, typically for Teran, lower tannin content. Teran can be a wild beast but this one really seems to be tamed and civilised.

Combining with food:

This is a perfect companion with grilled dishes either meat, vegetable or even fish, as tannins are on the lower side. On the other side it is rather universal food companion and can be server to pasta, cured meat, minced meat,...

Aging potential:

best from 2016 to 2021
