Ver Sacrum

Pale in colour, as you’d expect from a wine with no skin contact during fermentation. A lovely attack of wild raspberries on the nose. Wonderful fresh acidity on the palate along with more of that juicy burst of red fruits. A wine full of delicious tension and poise which, like all these amazing wines, has an unbelievably long finish. 50% of the wine is aged on the lees in concrete eggs for 6 months; 50% in 3rd use French oak casks of 225 litres, followed by 8 months in bottle.

“Pale, bright red with a light rim. Pretty floral lift to the aromas of red cherry, raspberry, menthol and fresh herbs. Juicy, smooth and intense, with lively acidity framing and lifting the red berry and floral flavours.”
