Bunches of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are de-stemmed and each berry is split, to ensure minimal degradation and encourage fresh, clean flavours. Merlot is crushed to fully expose the delicate flesh, for a more refined and elegant textural development. A fortnight of cool, gentle vinification on skins, allows for slower, more controlled extractions of tannin and flavour. Ferments are pumped over thrice daily over the course of a fortnight and judiciously backed off as the juices evolve into wine. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed into a selection of French oak barriques for ten months maturation, followed by clarification and the final assemblage.
Bright garnet colour. A compelling bouquet of vibrant cherry skin and dark berry characters , mintiness, dried herb and vanilla. A bold palate driven by blackberry and mocha oak, fleshy plum sweetness followed by a herbal savoury length. The tannins are fine grained, almost silky in texture, in fine balance before a dark chocolate allspice finish. Match with lamb, steak or eggplant, a superb accompaniement to rare, gamey duck.
