Tasting Note
The wine is bright purple in colour, with the nose showing fresh aromas of ripe berry fruits, with a touch of spicy pepper and the sweet lift of oak. The palate has ripe fleshy fruit flavours, which are enriched by hints of chocolate and liquorice. Maturation in oak with the combination of quality fruit has given this wine great complexity with the structure to last for another 3-5 years.
Technical Information
The fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness from our members' vineyards during March. The wine was transferred to our winery, where the fruit was crushed and destemmed. Fermentation took place in potter stainless steel tanks where the juice was pumped over to help the extraction of colour and tannins. A large portion of the wine was transferred to 1-3 year old American barriques for malo lactic fermentation and maturation for 9 months. After blending and fining the wine was bottled in December of the vintage year.
Serving Suggestion
Medium to full bodied, this wine possess great finesse, making it ideally suited to foods such as roast lamb and beef, casseroles, semi hard and hard cheeses.
