Following the harvest, grapes are inoculated and vinified in twenty tonnes rotary fermenters, which periodically mix the fruit and keep skins wet, maintaining temperatures at 20C to 25C. A natural culture is employed, selected for its capacity to preserve attractive berry aromas while keeping wild yeasts in check. Regular tasting twice daily throughout a week of vinification is followed by a term of maceration on skins for optimal extraction. Batches are pressed, assembled and racked to a selection of pre loved oak barrels for a brief but judicious course of maturation, aimed at integrating all components and taming the tannins, while retaining fresh Coonawarra fruit character.
Deep purple, magenta hues. Dark cherries and plum notes, blackberry and fruit compotes, liquorice, vanilla and cedar box oak. The fruits carry on to the palate, vibrant, generous and round, supported by soft tannins, following through with a subtle spiciness on the finish. Yearling has been fashioned to enjoy today around the dinner table alongside a crackling roast lamb.
