Vinification

The Grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness and destemmed onto a sorting table where green berries, leaves and stems are removed. 30% of the grapes are slightly crushed. The grapes are then cold macerated for 5 days. They are then inoculated and fermented between 25 & 27 °C with soft punch downs every 4 hrs. The wine is aged predominantly in French Oak, with about 30% new wood for 16 months.

Tasting Notes

A warm rich deep ruby red in glass with a watery edge. Beautiful complex nose of blackcurrant, persimmon, cassis, mulberry fruits, buchu and juniper, which follow through to the palate. Layer upon layer of flavour reveals rich mulberry, cassis and mocha flavours. Pure elegance and sophistication.
