These vines are young and have responded to Delienne’s soft-love, natural approach by producing fresh, vibrant flavors. Light bodied with bright raspberry and cranberry notes and just a sprinkle of spice on the finish that activates smooth tannins. Whole-cluster carbonic maceration, aged 8 months in neutral oak. foudre.
