Per Terras 2018 is made entirely with Cabernet Franc. It opens with intense aromas of black currant, Mediterranean herbs, blackberry and oak-sourced spice notes.
On the supremely elegant palate, supple tannins and bright acidity accompany cassis, black raspberry, crushed herb and licorice before a cedar finish.
This deeply-colored wine is full-bodied, concentrated and structured with serious but polished tannins and a long exuberant finish.
The grapes were hand-harvested with four stages of strict sorting. First, on the vine, then by individual clusters, and then again by single berry following destemming and sorting table. The selected grapes go directly into the concrete vats using gravity only.
The fermentation and maceration take a total of 3 weeks maximizing the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins round and supple.
After the fermentation the wine is drained followed by malolactic fermentation. Per Terras 2018 is aged 15 months in French barrique and Botte.
