Tasting Notes

Aromas of dark fruits and fragrant oak combine on the palate showing a depth of flavour, texture and balance. Food pairing: Lamb, Beef and Hard cheeses.

Technical Notes

Juice from the crushed and gently pressed grapes was allowed to naturally settle before being racked with light lees to seasoned French barrique and tank for fermentation. The small portion aged in seasoned oak has added subtle flavour, aroma and texture while the tank portion has provided fruit purity and clarity to the final wine. Both ferment portions were aged and stirred on lees, adding further complexity and enhancing the mouthfeel of the wine.
