Tasting Notes

Beautifully fragrant red berry and floral aromas combine with flavours of cherry, spice and earthy undertones on a silky, finely textured palate. Enjoyable in its youth and will continue to gain complexity with time. Food Matches: Poultry, game & pork.

Technical Notes

Parcels of grapes were harvested and cold soaked at 10ËšC between five and ten days before the onset of fermentation. Ferments were hand plunged, allowing gentle extraction of flavour and aroma compounds. Some batches were hot fermented to contribute density, structure and savoury complexity to the final wine, while others were fermented at lower temperatures to emphasise fruit characters, purity and elegance. The young wines were pressed and run to French barrique (15% new and balance seasoned) where malolactic fermentation took place in spring. Extended maturation on lees has added depth and complexity to the final wine.
