Grapes are destemmed and crushed into wax lined, seven and four tonnes, open top concrete fermenters. The batches are tasted thrice daily and the temperatures are adjusted at each tasting to maximise flavour, keeping the tannin in balance with the intensity of fruit. When the tannin and fruit balance are extracted to the desired level, the wines are basket pressed, settled and racked into a combination of the finest 225L French oak barriques. Components are tasted regularly throughout maturation, racked and returned as required. After twenty months, the very finest barrels are set aside for inclusion into the final assemblage.
Vivid garnet, deep purple hues. Highly complex aromas of allspice, chocolate, olive, fresh blueberry and persimmon flesh complemented by underlying spicy French oak and savoury, smoky notes.
