Flavours of mulberry, brambleberry and blackcurrant play wonderfully with the dusty tannins and creamy vanilla oak.
Full-bodied with fruit and spice flavours dominating.
Suitable for cellar ageing for at least 5+ years from vintage date.
4 days of pre-ferment cold soak then 12 days of warm primary and secondary fermentation was completed on this wine. This was followed up with 20 days on skins before finally pressing straight to barrel.
From here, the wine was matured in French oak barrels for 18 months to develop the complexity of the wine and to mature and balance the structural tannins in the wine.
