Culinary associations

Beef roast in herb crust →

Beef roast in herb crust

A safe and delicious association is that between Cabernet Sauvignon and beef. The spicy character of this wine is enhanced by aromatic, but delicate foods. Our proposal is roast beef cooked sous vide to remain juicy, covered with a herb crust. You can add some of the wine and the meat sauce left to create a delicious reduction to pour over the garnish.

Wine-making and maturation

Matured in oak barrel for 6 months

Matured in oak barrel for 6 months

The first selection is performed on the vineyard and only good, fully mature grapes are hand-picked, then carefully selected again on sorting tables. The philosophy is to only ferment good quality grapes. The tanks are filled by gravity without crushing the fruit. Cold maceration of whole berries is performed from 5 to 8 days at 12 -14 °C. Alcoholic fermentation with an addition of selected Kosher yeast strains is controlled at 26-28 °C for 8-10 days, followed by maceration in 20 cubic meters-thermoregulated stainless steel tanks for 5 days.
Aged in oak barrels for 6 months.
