Tasting Notes

Upfront dark fruit (plum, mulberry and blackcurrant) on the nose with hints of earthy forest floor and eucalyptus. The palate is juicy and full of the flavours of red and black fruits, layered oak and a hint of spice, all of which lingers on the finish.

About The Harvest

All grapes were hand picked.

In The Cellar

All grapes were hand picked and sorted before a pure yeast culture was inocculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days and the cake punched down. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained off the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 liter barrels of French oak types. The wine spent between 12- 14 months in barrels before blending, bottling and labeling.
