Tasting Notes: The Bouquet of this wine exhibits complex spicy dark fruits with mulberry and blackberry overtones. The Palate is elegant but rich, ripe plum and liquorice. This is balanced with savoury nuances, cedary oak and a long rounded finish.
Food Matches: This wine is best served as an aperitif or alternatively would perfectly accompany a variety of Steak, Lamb and BBQ dishes.

Winemakers Notes: The grapes were picked at 13.5 Baume and fermented in open fermenters for 10 days. After fermentation was complete the must was gently Basket Pressed into French and American Oak hogsheads where the wine was aged for 24 months. During this period it was racked three times before being blended and bottled without any fining or filtration.
An extended period of cellar maturation in bottle allowed for the integration and balance of the fruit and oak while developing complex bottle age characteristics.
