Blackwater's Omerta (Carignan)
The Carignan grapes are hand-harvested from a site with mainly granite soils. 30% of the grapes undergo whole-bunch fermentation. The juice spends 25 days on the skins, then aged in 500L old barrels for 16 months. The final product is bursting with dark and red berry fruit, with a mouthfeel that is rich and smooth. Subtle notes of Umami may also be found.
