Saint Augustin is an intense deep red of great brilliance. Delicious aromas of black fruits mingle with hints of menthol, giving the wine a pleasant freshness. The palate is full and generous with silky tannins and a long lasting finish.
This wine comes from a terroir near Sidi Bel Abbés in western Algeria. The unique climate of the Tessala Mountains combined with the siliceous limestone soils produces wines of outstanding ripeness and freshness.
Production follows both traditional and modern methods. After the hand harvest, the grapes ferment in small thermo-regulated vats. The maceration time is relatively long to give the wine depth.
