Italian in style and made from White Frontignac grapes, this is a low alcohol, slightly spritzy wine with sweet lush fruity flavours.
CANE CUT SEMILLON
Made from Semillon grapes, the vines had their canes cut when the flavours were ripe and the fruit left to slowly ripen. The result is a powerful and seductive dessert wine of great pleasure.

Colour Deep, deep red, magenta rim
AromaRich, bold dark fruits dominate, with bitter chocolate, creme anglaise, mocha and underlying spice and cracked pepper
PalateFine juicy fruit through the entry to the mid palate where spicy mocha notes emerge with fine tannins. The wine finishes long with juicy persistence.
Crushed into and fermented in five and ten tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour, flavour and tannin. Following an average of 15 days of maceration, the dry free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed to the same tank. After 24 hours, the wine was racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
Drink 2013 to 2028
