How it's made

Grapes were harvested by hand and berry sorted into stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation commenced spontaneously and was finished with a pure strain. Extraction was done with a combination of punch-down, rack-and-return and pump-over methods. Batches were gently pressed and immediately racked to small French oak barrels and 4500L oak "foudre" where they completed malolactic fermentation. The components were racked three times to clarify and develop the wines. Blending took place after 12 months ageing.

Tasting Notes

A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The wine shows plum and cinnamon spice on the nose. Black cherry and mulberry fruit shows through on the palate along with spice, all leading to a well integrated, firm tannin structure. A fruit forward and silky wine for everyday drinking.

Food Match
