Careful and meticulous winemaking practices and specialized viticulture are employed to ensure the highest quality cool climate wine. Central to the process is the method of canopy vine management which allows gentle morning sunlight and soft mountain breezes to delicately ripen fruit, producing vibrant colours and intense fruit flavours. Fruit is vinified in small batches through inoculation to choice Bordeaux yeasts and transferred to French oak for the completion of malolactic ferments. The best wines from individual barrels are selected according to intensity of colour, good varietal fruit definition and ripe, supple tannins. Components are racked and assembled into the finished wine.
Bright cherry colour with hues of garnet red. Plummy fruitcake nose, juicy cherry and licorice aromas underpinned with five spice and marzipan. Soft plummy ripe red fruit flavours to the palate, richly underpinned by sweet fruit and velvety soft tannins. The finish is weighty, warm and persistent. Enjoy with lasagna or stuffed oven baked eggplant.
