Garnet, brick red in colour, with blackberry, pencil shavings, black cherry and some spice on the nose. Medium in body with fine, smooth tannins. The wine is soft and juicy with great length.
From our premium vineyard. East-West row direction, with well drained sandy soil. Grapes were picked by hand and whole bunch sorting done at the cellar. This added to the quality of the final product. Cold soaking was done for three days, extracting colour and aromas early on in the process. A slow fermentation, as well as extended time on the skins further enhanced wine quality. The grapes were pressed at -2° Balling and matured in 65% new French oak barrels for 8 months. Stabilization and bottling took place in Decemebr 2014.
