More info

The wine shows a smooth silky mouth feel with soft tannins and a superb balance.

Selected hand-picked grapes were fermented separately in open tanks at 27°C. Punching down and pumping over was done 4 times per day. Up to 2 weeks skin contact was allowed for more complexity. All three cultivars matured separately for 12 months in 1st and 2nd fill French oak barrels. Selected barrels were blended prior to bottling.
