Winemaking

Handpicked, with each parcel handled separately in the winery. Hand sorted and carefully destemmed with 2 batches receiving whole bunches, each parcel went into traditional open fermenters. The wine underwent three days of cold soaking to ensure even and thorough extraction. Batches were on skins for 5-7 days, after which time they were transferred into French oak (500L puncheons) for 12 months, the wine was bottled in June 2021.  

 

Tasting note

Characteristic perfumed, fragrant aromas highlighted by cherry and red berry fruits, complemented by a touch of spice and underlying French oak. The long, silky palate has lovely elegance, a plush, velvety texture and a finely poised finish.
