TRIBUTE TO THE QUEEN
Esprit de Victoria
The month of January experienced very cool temperatures that did not soften until March. Flowering was delayed due to some cold nights in early June. The month of July was hot ending with some violent storms. This allowed the berries to fill out very well, but the September sun dried everything out nicely.. The late maturity meant that the bunches arriving at the press were full of sweet berries.

To the eye, a beautiful intense pink with a gentle effervescence. The nose is fine and attractive with aromas of ripe red fruits, wild strawberries and cherries, followed by notes of mint and orange. The palate is lively with plenty of fruit (kirsch, candied fruit) evolving into more exotic notes. A rich complex and balanced structure that combines body and finesse ends with beautiful length.
