Winemaking
Bunches hand sorted and de-stemmed. Fermentation in 6000 lt tanks. 3-4 pump-overs per day. 2 weeks maceration on skins.Malolactic fermentation in barrel. Maturation period , 14 monthsin 225 and 300 litre barrels.

Tasting Note
The aim with this wine has been to make a classic styled Shiraz leaning more towards its European heritage. White pepper, violets , mulberry and smoky vanilla notes on the nose are backed up by a bracing freshness and dry , ripe tannins on the palate. A smoky , complex meat and spice character gives a long aftertaste that shows the promise of at least 5 to 8 years ageing before this wine reaches its optimum drinkability.

Serving Suggestions
Excellent pair for slow cooked lamb meat seasoned with herbs and spices. Great with different kind of rich in flavours cheese, such as grana padano or reblochon.
