The grapes were hand sorted and lightly crushed into stainless steel fermentation tanks. They were given a cold soak for three days before allowing the natural fermentation to start. Three pump overs a day were done in the tanks during fermentation, after which they underwent extended skin contact for 2-3 weeks. The wine was placed in French oak barrels and underwent malolactic fermentation. Matured for 12 months in French oak and rack on average every four months. A total of 42,460 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Dark red fruits, plums and blackberries in particular. Hint of dried herbs.

Palate: The nose just follows through the palate with a well structured tannin, lively voluptuous body. It is definitely a must have for those grey winter evenings.

Finish: The black fruits just echo down your esophagus.
