From the rolling hills of the Blaye region, we bring to you “Solicantus”. Soli meaning soil & Cantus meaning melody in latin. True to its word this wine was created in perfect harmony with the savoir faire of the wine makers and the rich terroir of the finest land in Blaye.
The wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec aged for 18 months in french oak barrels which makes it a perfect red for all occasions. The nose finds a generous bouquet of ripe red fruit with nuances of spice and notes of refined cedar. It charms its way into the palate by delivering a rich silky mouthfeel, delicious fruitiness, supple tannins and a pleasant finish at the mid palate.
The vines average to about 35 years having grown on clay and limestone soils. Sustainability and organic viticulture have always been practiced and now the vineyard is officially in conversion to organic. This vintage was harvested late September & early October, vinified in steel tanks followed by four weeks of maceration to extract flavours, tannins and colour. Solicantus is a wine that gracefully evolves over time to provide a pleasurable experience.
