Basket Pressed Merlot 2016

This wine exhibits a complex bouquet with wild blackberries and mulberries interspersed with floral subtleties. The palate is juicy and full with dark berries, balanced with complex savoury undertones. It finishes long and rich with balanced acidity and silky tannins.  
Food Matches:  This wine is best served as an aperitif or alternatively would perfectly accompany a variety of Steak, Lamb and BBQ dishes.
Winemaking Notes:  After harvesting in late April the fruit was destemmed and chilled prior to inoculation and fermentation in half tonne open fermenters for 14 days at slightly lower temperatures to retain aromatics and flavour.  After fermentation was finished the must was gently basket pressed into French oak where it was aged for 12 months.  During the aging process the wine is racked a number of times and bottled without any fining or filtration.
Harvest Date: 8th of April 2016 Drinking Window: 2017 -2035
