  • Tasting Notes

    Colour
    Black to the core with a red rim

    Aroma
    Very tight but with lovely subtle notes of blackcurrent, ash, chocolate, dried herbs, oak and fine fleshy tannins. Very feminine.

    Palate
    Beautiful bright red/black fruits that roll through the palate, balanced well with subtle dried herbs, oak and fine fleshy tannins. Very feminine.

  • Wine Making

    Handpicked, crushed, de-stemmed and fermented in five tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs three times daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following an average of 15 days “on skins”, the free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed with the pressings being combined in the same tank. After 24 hours, the wine was racked to oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and unfiltered

    Maturation
    20 months in 60% new French Taransaud hogsheads with the balance in two to four year old Taransaud
