The varieties used to create this wine are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, harvested from the vineyard’s finest plots. Prior to bottling, the wine is set to mature in French oak barrels, most brand new for approximately 16 mnths, followed by approx.4 months in concrete tanks. Castel Gran Vin is a classic, elegant wine, bearing deep coloring and a concentrated and complex bouquet of blackberries, spices and fine(yet tangible) tannin. This is a balanced wine with a velvety smoothness and a long clean finish. It is recommended to decanter the wine before serving.
