A lifted bouquet of florals, raspberries, dark cherries, plum and purple mulberries with layers of spice.
Generous flavours of raspberries, dark cherries and spices dominate the palate which balance together with the soft tannins offering a silky finish.
For 2020 vintage started later than usual with
reds picking in April and early May. This was due to lower than average temperatures during the months prior to harvest. The mild
and cooler weather was quite beneficial to the ripening process of the reds, allowing a long stint of tannin ripening. Only the most
balanced fruit made the cut for this blend.
Each individual parcel was crushed and fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel vessels. After desired tannins and colour was sustained, the wine was pressed off skins during fermentation. The wine was matured using French oak for a period of 12 months. After maturation was completed, selected parcels were blended together and a light fining before going to bottle.
