All harvesting is done by hand, grapes are crushed and destemmed, a portion is included as whole bunches. Pre-fermentation maceration ensues for seven to ten days until a wild indigenous yeast fermentation ensues. The musts are vinified in small open 500 litre vats for a week at temperatures peaking to 31C, while being treated to pigeage four times daily. Fermentations are followed by several days of maceration for optimal extraction. Batches are pressed straight to a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels to allow for gross lees contact. Following malolactic, components are racked twice throughout the maturation period before being bottled unfiltered.
Deep red colour. Intense bouquet of cherries and spice, mocha and smoked meats. A sweet cherry and briar flavoured palate with hints of clove. Offers excellent palate weight, a silky mouthfeel and fine integrated tannins. Lovely balance across the palate and a great long finish.
