Tasting notes
This is a firmly structured, dark wine. It has black cherry and berry fruit, a solid core of tannins and tight acidity. With its dense character, there is every chance of this impressive wine aging well, yielding a more rounded wine. Drink from 2016.

Other text
Vega (a Lyr, a Lyrae, Alpha Lyrae) is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, the fifth brightest star in the night sky and the third brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere, after Sirius and Arcturus. It is a relatively close star at only 25 light-years from Earth, one of the most luminous stars in the Sun’s neighborhood. The word comes from the Arabic ”al-waqi ’” ”an-nasr al-waqi’, which means’ eagle landing.” Ancient peoples identified their region of the sky making the figure of a bird, including the eagle. Vega is also known as the Star of the Harp because of Lira, the official name of the constellation in which the star is located. The Lira is usually linked to the Greek legend of Orpheus. Curious to note that in the heady days of the constellation star charts Lira appeared decorated with a bird, a connection of the Greek version with the older forms of the constellation. The famous scientist and writer Carl Sagan, writing one of his greatest literary successes, Contact then a box office success film of the same name, puts Vega as a meeting point of a civilization infinitely more advanced than ours.

Food pairing
Superb on its own, it is also an excellent to any meat dishes, oily fish, spicy food, Mediterranean cuisine and cheese.
