In 2001 Gérard Gribelin and Philippe Gervoson fell in love with Domaine de la Zouina. Struck by the richness of the terroir, the particularity of the soil and the climate, they were certain that they could produce unique results and so they decided to translate their passion and wine-making knowledge from Pessac-Leognan to Morocco.
Once harvested the grapes are brought into a cold room and are sorted manually so that only the best grapes are used to make the wine. The fermentation is done at low temperature to maximise the fruit flavours. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks for 15 months before being released for sale.
This wine has notes of leather, tobacco and mocha. The colour is very deep, almost black with a ruby rim. The grapes used in the wine are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Tempranillo – Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety. There are round and soft tannins on the palate which balance the wine’s complexity perfectly. This enjoyable style of wine goes particularly well with all types of meats and cheeses.
ABV = 14.5%.
