Wine Description

Deep inky purple in colour with crimson hues this wine displays red current and blackberry notes together with complex spicy aromas. On the palate layers of wild berry fruit character with nuances of dried herb contribute to great complexity. Long fine velvety tannins and a core strength of flavour persists through the length of the palate.

Winemaking

Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenters. Selected fermenters also had a component of whole bunches added to the destemmed berries. A pre-fermentation cool soak ensured a slow initiation to fermentation. Ferment temperatures were allowed to peak at 32oC before being cooled to 28oC for the remainder of the fermentation. Hand plunged daily allowed for a gentle extraction and helped to prolong the fermentation. After an extended period on skins the ferments were pressed to predominately new French oak hogsheads. Matured and racked only once through the 22-month maturation period provided for extended mouth-feel and wine texture development. Prior to bottling, natural clarification and stabilisation techniques were employed to ensure minimal finings and no filtration.
