Grapes were harvested from the end of February until the end of March 2017 from vineyards with an average age of 20 years. Various parcels, within 3 estate vineyards, were picked separately. Grapes were crushed and destemmed and fermented in open-top tanks, with a combination of four punch-downs and pump-overs daily. Some portions were left on the skin for an additional 3 weeks, before spontaneous malolactic fermentation in tank. As soon as malolactic fermentation was completed, the various parcels were racked into barrels. Matured in 300-litre oak barrels, 18% new French oak for 12 months. Bottled in December 2018. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A beautiful nose of black cherries, red berries and a hint of pepper and spice.

Palate: A very vibrant wine. Notes of cherries and raspberries greet on entry. Wine seamlessly reveals notes of crushed granite and floral elements on the mid-palate.

Finish: The wine has fine powdery tannins which are beautifully integrated. Lovely, hearty notes of sweet oak spice on the finish.
