The elegance of this wine cannot be understated. Vibrant aromas of mulberries, blueberries and redcurrant, complimented by subtle French oak. Balanced by an earthy savouriness and subtle vanillin.
Whole berries enhance the aromatics of fresh mulberries and blueberries. Elegant and medium bodied, driven by purity of fruit with exceptionally fine grained tannins and a lingering palate. Selected use of French oak will compliment and nurture the wine for decades.
Whole berries were fermented wild in static fermenters, with pump overs twice each day and délestage once per day, throughout ferment. The wine was left on skins for 15 days then pressed to French oak barriques (50% new) to finish malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in oak for 14 months.
Vibrant red hues.
