    In accordance with biodynamic principles, all fruit is hand harvested from vines up to forty years of age. A patented Mistral® apparatus removes the leaf material and infertile berries from the vineyard, providing cleaner bunches. A luxurious cepage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the grapes are carefully sorted before fermentation to indigenous yeasts and malolactic bacteria. No acid or cultured yeasts are added, achieving a wine with a sense of place through a completely natural process. Components are separately vinified before being treated to nineteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques.
    Delicate crimson, garnet ruby hue. Plum, mulberry and blackcurrant aromas cascade out of the glass accompanied by elevated notes of violet and rose. Savoury ironstone and tobacco complete the classic aroma profile of Diana Madeline. Fine grained tannins with uplifting and sustained fruit notes. Red fruit and plum flavours connect with the ironstone minerality, providing backbone and structure. Medium bodied, elegant, the depth and length are profound, proverbial fist in a velvet glove.
