Wonderfully dense garnet in colour, this wine shows concentrated aromas of sweet black currants and Doris plum. The palate offers the same sweet black fruit wrapped in silky tannins. The finish is long with lingering flavours of vanilla spice.
Winemaker Anita Ewart-Croy
Winemakers Notes-Harvest-Vinification-Fermentation The Merlot and Malbec grapes for this wine were hand harvested and then destemmed to small open fermenters. The ferments were gently hand plunged three times daily to gently extract tannin and colour. Indigenous yeasts were used to maximise fruit and complexity. Once complete, the separate varieties were gently pressed and put to American barriques for malolactic fermentation. After 14 months barrel maturation, the wines were blended and carefully fined with fresh egg white before bottling.
