VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
This wine is a blend of 79% cabernet sauvignon and 21% merlot
The fruit was picked and sorted in early April 2019. It was cold-soaked in small fermenters for five days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration allowing for the softening of the tannins. Twenty-five percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one-year-old and two-year-old Bordeaux barriques for thirteen months maturation before final blending and bottling in October 2020.
This wine displays bright and lifted aromas of dark berry and bay leaf and gentle oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth-filling with juicy red fruit flavours balanced with acidity and gentle fine-grained tannins which lead to a long finish. It is well suited to red meat dishes such as a roast leg of lamb with garlic and herbs.
