Tasting Notes

Appearance: Deep purple colour. Bouquet & Palate: Nose of dark ripe berries and meaty spice, typical of the varietal. Palate shows spice with savory rather than fruity flavours. The wine finishes with coriander and pepper - a nice long aftertaste.

About The Harvest

All grapes were hand picked.

In The Cellar

All grapes were sorted before a pure yeast culture was inoculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3 - 5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 litre barrels of French and American oak types.
