Tasting Notes

Deep crimson in colour with aromas of clove vanilla, black berries and sweet spice on the nose. The palate is full and vibrant with juicy yet elegantly soft tannins which lingers to a smooth and long finish. Enjoy now or store properly till 2024.


Winemaker's Notes

Harvesting performed by hand. Pre-cooling of grapes to around 6 degrees before crushing. Cold soaking performed for two days, with the start of fermentation, followed by the addition of commercial yeast thereafter. Pump overs done three times per day, with a rack and return (Delestage) and pressed at 5° Balling. 14 days extended skin contact after fermentation to obtain richness. Aged in 300L French oak barrels for 12 months.
