bright, red fruit on the nose – cherries, plums, redcurrant with a hint of dried flowers and smokiness. colour is a light ruby red. beautifully clean and lively palate with cherry fruit balanced by a very attractive, slightly bitter edge.
the heba is a multi-purpose red, you can drink on an everyday basis without getting bored of it. the acidity will handle a cotoletta all milanese (or a weiner schnitzel/cordon bleu, anything fried in bredcrumbs.) a chicken roasted with rosemary and garlic potatoes (and anything cooked in rosemary will be good)
this wine has been aged in egg-shaped cement tanks, an older practise coming back into fashion. it preserves the fruit aromas of the wine extremely well, keeps the temperature regulated and adds a touch of minerality. the absence of oak deliveres a very pure style.
