harvest note

The 2015 growing season got off to a good start with budburst in mild conditions and only a few rainy days during spring. Favourable conditions gave a quick flowering and good fruit set, vegetative growth was balanced and regular and disease pressure was low. This balance was temporarily lost with a heatwave in July and a day of abundant rainfall at the end of August. A mild and relatively dry September offered good conditions for a balanced ripening of the grapes. 2015 was yet another year when it payed off to be patient and to take some risk in leaving the grapes hanging despite worrying weather forecasts.

tasting note

The quality of the primary fruit is impeccable cherry, blackberry and dark prune. Savory spice and tobacco frames that fruit with precision and focus. There is no doubt that this is the best edition of Biserno.

food pairing

Pair with braised or roasted meats and hard cheeses.
