Chronos – God of time.

"Anything that is against nature will not endure in the long run." (Darwin)


One smells fully ripe blackberries, some mint, a very deep and juicy fruit. On the palate, the organic cuvée is full and yet fine; Chronos tastes of cherries and berries, has a lot of pressure and structure, looks lively and juicy. 

The finish is long and elegant. Big potential!
