Mimi's Cabernet vines were planted in 1990, the Syrah in 1994, all are cane pruned and shoot thinned to sixteen bunches, the younger Nebbiolo plantings are trimmed to six bunches each. Grapes are hand picked into 8kg buckets and transported to the winery. Fruit is destemmed, crushed and tipped into a mix of open and closed fermenters. The wines are naturally vinified at warmer temperatures of 25°C to 30°C and remain on skins over the course of a fortnight for optimal extraction. Mimi is pressed, settled overnight and gravity filled to a selection of seasoned and new oak casks where she gracefully reposes at 16°C for over a year. Components are then gravity racked from cask and assembled.
Bright red, garnet edge. Juicy Cabernet nose with lovely savoury, black cherry notes. Very medium bodied with structure and acidity. Richly textured, long, rustic and fine with good tannin. The Syrah and Nebbiolo are quite gentle on the Cabernet, so there is a lovely little leafy note to the blend and a touch of stylish Italianate bitterness.
