Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varietals. Bunches were sorted on a conveyor belt and berries sorted on a vibrating sorting table, berries uncrushed. Fermented wild in 500-litre open top French oak barrels with 15 to 20 day post-fermentation maceration on the skins done in the same barrels. Matured for 25 months in 50% new 225-litre French oak barriques. A total of 6,240 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Enticing with upfront fruit notes of blackcurrant, strawberries and sour cherries. Savoury undertones of cedar, coco and liquorish counter the fresh fruit.

Palate: Perfectly balanced with the initial sweetness of ripe currants and plums balanced by the flavours of red cherries and black olives. The acidity is gentle but present and the tannin polished.

Finish: A slight chalky finish giving length.
