Wood and fruit are heard
We already had the character. The real challenge was to incorporate the complexity and structure of the oak into the personality of our Atlantic red DoUmia, without muffling its fruity identity, freshness and youth. We worked to achieve balance: never before has the dialogue between wood and fruit been so enriching!
