Tasting Notes

Red plum in colour, with blackberry, cherry, truffle and cedar wood on the nose. The palate, medium in body, shows an abundance of fruit, softness and fine subtle tannins. This wine is made for everyday enjoyment.


Winemaker's Notes

A Bordeaux style blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Both cultivars were handpicked, sorted and then vinified seperately. Three pump-overs were done daily, extracting colour and flavours. The wine was blended and aged for 6 months and bottled in September 2017.
