Description

Tasting Notes

With deep, complex aromas of blackberries and mulberries with meaty overtones this wine is rich and bright. The palate is sturdy and svelte with a pleasing balance of freshness and savoury bold tannins. Enjoyable now but will benefit from further ageing.

Winemaking Notes

Made from estate grown Durif vines that are 8 years old. The grapes were harvested on 1st March 2017 fermented in open vats, hand-plunged then pressed. Malolactic fermentation and maturation were carried out barrel.  The wine was matured in 470-liter, new (50%) and one-year old French oak barrels for 18 months. Prior to bottling it was fined with egg white.  Alc. 14.9%, cellaring well for up to 12 years.
