Cabernet Sauvignon 55%, Merlot 45%
Far Eastern spice dishes, rich Mediterranean. Aged Cheeses.
30% New, 70% older French oak Barriques
Lifted aromas of dark berries and Satsuma plums with hints of cinnamon and thyme.
Medium bodied with flavours of dark berries and plums on the palate leading to characters of sweet spice and dried herbs. All beautifully integrated with fine grained tannins and a persistent finish.
Grapes were picked during the early hours of the morning while it was cool to allow cold soaking to gently extract colour and skin tannins. The grapes were fermented in open fermenters to allow gentle pump-overs three times a day. Post alcoholic fermentation the wine was transferred to 30% new French oak barrels and 70% older French barrels for Malo-lactic fermentation. After 18 months of maturation, the wine was blended, fined with egg white and filtered before bottling.
