Tasting note

A bright, ruby hued wine with aromas of black cherry, violets and savoury spice on the nose. A fleshy palate with notes of plum and spice, silky tannins and a firm finish.

Vinification

The two parcels were picked two weeks apart, when the fruit was showing perfect ripeness and balanced fruit flavours. The parcels were cold macerated at 6–8 degrees for 5 days before being warmed and inoculated with selected yeast. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with regular hand plunging to craft a wine with elegance and structure. Post primary fermentation the parcels were gently pressed off, settled for 24 hours then racked off heavy lees and aged in a mixture of large format French oak cuves and barriques. The wine remained in oak for 9 months and was then stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
