Tasting Notes: This wine is deep and brooding. Spiced plums and roses peer out from behind a complex wall of aroma. Juicy plums, cloves and mixed dried herbs combine with a core of dense graphite tannin that is quite commanding and rings long.
Winemaking Notes: Harvest: Handpicked on the 12th of March
Vinification & Elevage: Fermented with 15% whole bunches and 85% as whole berries. Short cold soak, plunged once per day then pressed after 14 days to French oak hogsheads for indigenous malolactic conversion. The wine is then racked, sulphured and returned to oak for maturation for 10 months in oak.
Viticultural Notes: Optimal conditions for flowering and fruitset in the vineyards gave well balanced yields with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest. A dry January and February followed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage, though attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balanced fruit with concentration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity. Our winemaking philosophy is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard and allow the wines to express the indiviuality of the vineyard and each growing seaon. The grapes for this wine were handpicked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions.
