Misleadingly accessible, despite the current appeal, there is enough underlying power for a long future ahead.
Grapes were handpicked early in the morning. The Cabernet Sauvignon block is a very low yielding block at 3 – 4 tons/ha but produces constant good quality grapes. All grapes were selectively picked and identified before harvest to go into this blend. Some grapes were stored overnight in the cold room before processed the next morning. Grapes were hand sorted and destemmed but not crushed. Whole berries were cold soaked for 48 – 72 hours before inoculated. Fermentation took about 15 days at 18 – 28 ˚ C with a carefully planned pump over/punch down schedule in open and closed fermenters. Malbec were racked at 6 balling to finish fermentation in barrels. Malolactic fermentation was done in barrels and only free run wine were used in this blend. Wine was oak matured for 18 months in 60 % new French oak barrels.
