Batches are hand plunged twice daily and held on skins for a further fortnight to enhance complexity and build tannin structure. Upon completion, components are pressed and racked to a selection of seasoned and new French oak for two years maturation.
Rich ruby red, inky, vibrant hues. Well perfumed with red forest fruits, sweet cassis and intense florals. Textural palate, concentrated, generously flavoured, the gorgeous florals flow, classic forest fruits and intensity of oak, supported by juicy tannins and divine mineral acid length. a fully elegant style of Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by the affable tannin structure of Malbec.
