More info

As a result of the excellent vintage and careful maturation, it is succulent, silky smooth with polished tannins. Although drinking well, there is rnough underlying structure for further maturation.

Grapes were handpicked early in the morning. 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 hours before it was left to naturally start fermenting in 1 ton bins. Fermentation took about 20 days at 18 – 28 ˚ C with only regular punch down. Malolactic fermentation was done in barrels and only free run wine were used in this blend. Wine was oak matured for 18 months in 70 new % American oak barrels and 30 % French oak barrels. After final blending the wine was only cross flowed before bottling. Only 2000 litres of this wine was made.
