Lots of dark cherries and plums with a herbal character. The variety is closely linked to Gamay and this really shines through in this wine. Bursting with fresh flavour!
The Magula's have been farming biodynamically for two generations in the Rose and the Wolf valleys of Sucha with deep loess soils and high proportions of minerals. Very little rainfall so the vines root very deep and suck up all these mineral characters. The sunny days means the vines ripen to perfection.
