WINEMAKING

Handpicked, hand sorted and gently destemmed (leaving 25% whole bunch in both 1.1 and 1.4 parcels) into a traditional French oak fermenter. Following a 3-4 day soaking the fermentation proceeded, peaking in temperature at 32ºC. The wine was pressed off skins after 14 days into tight grain French oak 500L puncheons for malolactic fermentation and maturation. It remained in oak for 11 months, bottled February 2019.

 

TASTING NOTE

Red cherry, forest berries, Asian spice, rose petals and a perfumed note highlight the aromas. The palate has a fine structure with supple tannins, a silky texture and volume of fruit that carries the long finish.  Extremely fine and poised. Carefully stored, this wine will cellar for 8 – 12 years.
