Tasting Note An attractive wine style. Medium to deep magenta/purple in colour. The nose displays complex, lifted, blackcurrant, raspberry and cinnamon fruit characters and subtle, sweet vanillin oak. The palate is generous, with rich, red berry fruit flavours and soft tannins, and a smooth lingering finish.
Technical Information Harvested from our members vineyards at optimal ripeness during March. The fruit was taken to our winery where it was crushed and destemmed. The "must" was transferred to stainless steel fermenters where it was inoculated with cultured yeast to start fermentation. The wine was pumped over to assist with colour and tannin extraction. Portions of the wine were transferred to small barriques for maturation and Malo lactic fermentation. Bottling was late in the vintage year.
Serving Suggestion Due to rich berry fruit and soft tannins this wine is a versatile
match for pizzas, bolognaise, or roasted meats. The wine is ideal drinking now but will reward bottle aging for another 3 years.
