Tasting Notes: With aromas of bright red kirsch cherry, dark chocolate and bramble notes, this wine has a rounded and long mouthfill. The palate continues with cherries and berries and is linear with firm tannins and structure that will soften over the coming years as it has excellent cellaring potential.
Winemaking Notes: Fruit for this wine was sourced from 25 year old vines. Fermented in static fermenters with daily pump overs and the occasional rack and return during ferment. The wines spent 40 days on skins and once press, filled off to French oak (30% new) hogsheads and barriques for 10 months maturation. The wine was racked twice before bottling.
Viticultural Notes: Optimal condition for both flowering and fruit set in the vineyards gave well balanced yields with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest. A dry January and February follwed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage, though attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balanced fruit with concerntration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity.
