– Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby red colour. This is a full-bodied wine with a well-integrated tannin structure and concentrated mid-palate. The wine is bursting with red and blackberries, mulberry, and ripe plum flavours, combined with French oak spice and a hint of cloves. The wine is beautifully balanced and the velvety smooth palate creates a lingering finish.

Serve with:
The perfect partner for roast beef, roast lamb, or a beef stew.

The Harvest:
The grapes were hand-harvested at 24° balling – the optimal time of aromatic concentration.

In the Cellar:
Cold maceration took place over 3 days at 15°C followed by
fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 26° to 28° balling until dry. Only free-run juice was used to make this wine. The wine was matured in French oak barrels.

Ageing Potential:
Enjoy now or within five years from vintage.

100% Merlot
