Grapes were harvested in March 2015 from vines with an average age of 18 years. The selected areas of the best blocks were harvested at optimum ripeness and yeast fermented in open tanks at 28°C. Regular punching-down and pumping-over was practised, with 2-3 weeks of skin contact after fermentation. Matured for 12 months with no racking in 300-litre French oak barrels of which 40% was new, 40% 2nd-fill and 20% 3rd-fill. Bottled in January 2017 with no fining, only course filtration prior to bottling. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Typical mulberry, cassis and blackberry aromas, with hints of cigar box.

Palate: Well balanced with layers of red fruit present. A good structured mid-palate with notes of mocha present on the aftertaste.

Finish: Lovely silky tannins and a creamy finish.
