Description

The Benbournie region was settled in 1853 by Catholic German friends of local priest, Father Kranewitter. The tiny settlement comprises about 15 mud huts surrounded by a Roman Catholic chapel.

The small community’s optimism was built on copper mining, however the industry’s decline signalled its demise before the turn of the century. All that remains today are a few ancient vines, fig and almond trees.

Eyes

This wine is a deep crimson red colour in the glass.

Nose

Intensely aromatic with a mix of dark vine fruits, dark chocolate, fresh garden herbs, cedar oak and a touch of earth.

Mouth

The palate is flooded with generous dark berry flavours with savoury notes of earth, clove and cedar. Very fine, mineralic tannin lends length and style to a wine of great presence and persistence.
