Ameztia 2014


The key to a great wine is to tend to the grapes with the same care that a shepherd tends his flock: as the shepherd knows that the best lambs come from a well-nourished ewe, a vintner should know that the best grapes come from a well-tended vine.

Vinification Fermented in half stainless steel with one third of the wine aged in new to 2-year-old barrels.Aged for 1 year in a combination of stainless steel, foudre, and old barrels.

Tasting Notes Pronounced color with violet reflections. Nice structure, with a big mouthfeel, lots of length and smooth tannins of the finish. Pair with a nice piece of red meat.
