Barbera is harvested from vines up to thirty years of age, throughout the cool of night to ensure a slow start to fermentation. As vinification ensues, temperatures are allowed to rise, maintained at a range between 25°C and 30°C. Depending on the season and quality of fruit, batches are treated to a week or more on skins for the extraction of fine, medium bodied tannins. The active batches are drained and pressed to a selection of seasoned French oak barriques for completion of ferments and a spell of malolactic. After a year of maturation, components are assembled into the final wine and rested for at least six months in bottle prior to release.
Dark, cherry red colour. A showcase of cool climate red fruit characters, fragrances of red currant interplay with suggestions of leather and spice. A ripe palate of currants and plum, cherry flavours are integrated with cedar and vanilla oak, warming varietal spice, dark chocolates and leaf. The structure is tight with fine tannins in support through the length of palate. A good choice with duck, terriyaki beef and lamb.
