A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Purple in colour, showing some maturation. The nose is forthcoming with blackberry, black cherry and cassis. The palate is full and juicy with soft, fine, well integrated tannins. The wine shows great depth with a long, lingering finish.
The wine was produced from handpicked grapes from our premier vineyards. Four pump overs were done per day, adding to colour, richness and tannins. The different grape varietals were fermented separately with extended maceration on skins after fermentation. Only the best barrels were selected for this wine. The wine was aged for 24 months in 80% new and 20% second fill 225L French oak barrels. Wine was stabilized and bottled in June 2014. Drink now or age up to 2025.
