Peppery spice and oak mix well with red fruits resulting in a silky mouth feel, with a nose of soft mint and ripe currants.
Good winter rains followed by a warm growing season lead to good yields of fruit. A hot beginning to the harvest period accelerated the ripening with frantic harvesting ensuring to pick the fruit with the ideal flavour spectrum.
The vineyards chosen exhibited rich fruit flavours with generous colour and were harvested when flavour was at its optimum. Fermented on skins for 5-7 days at 20-22°C to maximise fruit, tannin and colour extraction. This wine undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation, and is fermented on American Oak, then matured with American Oak staves with micro-oxygenation for approximately 2 months.
