Winemaking Process Grapes all harvested by hand and picked at optimum ripeness. Fermented in open top stainless steel fermentation tanks with temperature control. Only punchdowns are done on this particular varietal with no pump overs to ensure that the tannins extracted remain balanced and give the wine good structure without being to aggressive on the palate.
Maturation Post fermentation the wine is all aged in 225L French oak barrels, 2nd and 3rd fill for 24 months. Older barrels are chosen to ensure that the prominent red fruit character is not overpowered by oak aromas
Tasting Comments Light red in color with a brick-orange tint. The nose is very complex with cherry, raspberry and tobacco flavours combined with secondary aging characteristics. The wine is wonderfully structured on the mid palate and finishes off with firm juicy tannins. This wine will compliment cold meats and tomato bases dishes.
