The Hochar Père et Fils 2015 is a blend of Cinsault (50%), Grenache (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) – the grapes were fermented between 27 ° C and 29 ° C with maceration in cement vats, followed by 6 months in French Nevers oak barrels. It was blended in the spring of 2017 and bottled later on that year.
The Hochar of this year is a bright ruby colour – there are red fruits on the nose; bitter sweet cherries with a hint of dark chocolate. Classic bright red fruits flavours and sweet, spicy notes follow through to the palate. The tannins are soft, the acidity fresh with very long length. Cellared well, it will keep for several years.
