The ancient vineyard
"Best friend for meditations"
The plot of land in which our merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon vines have grown for over 40 years has always been known by this name. The grapes hang on the vine until well into autumn for a late harvest followed by a traditional-style red wine vinification. The must ferments with the skins for three weeks and then, before the fermentation has completely finished, it is transferred into small French oak barrels. It is this passage that gives softness to the wine, the perfect balance and integration of the oak. Gortmarin has an underplayed style which favours elegance but it has a depth and a complexity which unfolds with the passing of time. And in fact, thanks to its balance, this is a wine made to evolve over the long term, maintaining its varietal character and acquiring a pot-pourri of aromas of spices and dried flowers. To enjoy at table or all by itself, in moments of peace and tranquility.
