Grapes were harvested in March 2015, hand-picked from selected parcels within 3 different blocks. Fermented in open-top tanks – a combination of punch-downs and pump-overs were used to gain optimal extraction. Left on the skins for 28 days and then pressed into barrel. Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel and the wine was left without any SO2 for 3 months. Thereafter, SO2 was added and the wine remained in barrel, without racking, for 24 months. Matured in 300-litre French oak barrels (60% new). Bottled in September 2017 without fining and minimal filtration. Bottled at 15%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Beautiful aromas of black pepper, cherries, dried herbs and a hint of violet.

Palate: Generous on the entry with plenty of notes of cherries and dates. A rich and elegant wine with notes of black pepper and thyme on the mid-palate. Very well integrated silky tannins.

Finish: Seamless finish with lingering notes of dates, prunes and oak spice.
