Vanilla and chocolate shine through here, a nice mellow finish with subtle spice and pepper.
Good winter rains followed by a warm growing season led to good yields of fruit. A hot beginning to the harvest period accelerated the ripening with frantic harvesting ensuring the fruit was picked with the ideal flavour spectrum.
The vineyards are monitored and selected by the winemaker for their rich fruit flavours, with generous colour. Fruit is then harvested when both flavour and sugar balance were at a optimum. Fruit was cold soaked and fermented at 22 - 30°C for an average seven days. Wine spent twelve months in American oak barriques with 15% in new oak.
