Winemaking
On arrival at the winery all grapes were first subjected to a whole cluster selection. This was followed by destemming (without crushing) and then an individual berry selection before being gravity fed to small open-top tanks. A 7 day cold soak (at 5ºC/41ºF) ensued after which time the must was warmed and inoculated with selected yeasts (Assmanhaussen and RC212) and fermented during 10 days with temperatures peaking at 32ºC/90ºF. During fermentation the vats were hand-plunged twice daily in order to extract the ideal amount of tannin and colour. Following the completion of fermentation the wine was drained off (after a total maceration time of 17 days) and put to barrel. The wine was aged for a total of 14 months in French oak barrels (50% of which were new, and 50% of which were third use) before being bottled without filtration. After bottling the finished wine was carefully aged for three months in our cellar prior to release.

Tasting Note
Ruby red in colour. On the nose an exuberant bouquet of dark cherry, cedar and is accompanied by savoury notes of moist earth and bramble. In the mouth layered notes of blackberry and dark chocolate give way to smokey/mineral notes on the finish. A well integrated oak backbone is backed-up by abundant, well-rounded tannins lending excellent length and structure.

Serving Suggestions
Particularly delicious served with roasted game birds, but also partners well to roast lamb. In cheeses we recommended the one of goat and sheep.
