Notes from the Importer: Canon is our decomplexed vision of a local traditional place where wine is produced...It is our imaginery "château" ! Canon has a complex and rich identity, without any look-a-like blend: the taste is that of the vineyard's spirit where the grand father managed his plots of complantation and agroforestry. White and Red mixed together sets the tempo with notes of red fruits and surprising white-fleshed fruits. Short maceration, six months in old oak barrils, the presence of the white grapes results in a well-balanced wine between freshness and tannic powers, drinkable from its' youngest age.
