The warm sunny days and crisp, cool nights at Sandalford make for ideal ripening conditions. The growing seasons achieve harvests of disease free fruit, flavour and acidity levels always at optimal levels. After crushing and destemming, fruit is vinified in small ten tonnes static fermenters. A traditional regimen of pumpovers are employed to optimise colour, flavour and tannin extraction. Upon completion, batches are rested for a fortnight on sedimentery soilds, the musts are returned to the free runs and inoculated for malolactic with select bacteria. Components are racked into a selection of new and one year old French oak barrels for a year's maturation and the final assemblage.
Dark cherry with a magenta hue. Classic Margaret River nose with savoury notes of bay leaf, rosemary and sage. Primary fruit of violet and blackcurrant can be sensed along with seamless cedar/ vanillin oak nuances poking through. A magnificent full bodied wine with silky tannins and bags of dark briary fruit flavours, toasty oak elements woven through the mix. Long, persistent finish, subtle oak, the quality is outstanding.
