Wine Description

Deep crimson in colour with a complex aroma of dark cherry, plums and ripe cocoa beans. The palate is powerful and well structured, fleshy, with lashings of flavour finishing slick and focused.

Winemaking

Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenters. The fruit was chilled for 6 days before being allowed to naturally warm up to start fermentation. To optimise the vineyard expression a range of hand plunging cap management techniques were used across the different vineyard parcels. Post-pressing, the wines were transferred to a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. Matured for 20 months in oak without racking, the wines were then carefully blended. The blended wine was then naturally clarified and bottled with minimal filtration.
