Bouquet: Intense youthful fresh ripe berry fruit flavours with some well integrated vanillian oak.
Palate: Full bodied dense ripe berry fruit flavours balanced with vanillian oak but yet long and smooth.
Vinification and Maturation: The grapes were picked at between 13.5 to 14.0 Baume to produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great wine. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of vessels to produce as much colour and flavour as possible. Portion of the wine underwent oak during fermentation and once dry, the remaining went to oak until the right balance was achieved. Careful tasting and blending, by our winemaker, help produce this wine of style and great value for money.
