Tasting Note Bright purple in colour the nose shows ripe varietal characters,
currant, plum and blackberry fruits framed with spicy cedar oak
complexity. These flavours are mirrored on the palate, and
combine with soft gentle tannins.
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.
Serving Suggestion This is a versatile wine style and an excellent accompaniment to an array of foods including seafoods, pastas and meats such as veal or chicken.
