Notes from the Winemaker:
The color is bright, deep morello cherry-red. The nose reveals aromas of blackberries, raspberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of tobacco and spices such as clove and cinnamon. It is a medium-bodied wine with elegant structure, balanced acidity and very ripe, elegant tannins. The finish is moderately-long, dominated by red fruits and followed by sweet vanilla and black pepper

Fermented and macerated in stainless steel vats, aged in used French barriques for 12 months and a further 6 months in bottle. Blackberries, mulberries, raspberries, ripe strawberries, a touch of aniseed, cinnamon, fine tannins, round and velvety mouth.

Vinification/Maturation:
Alcoholic fermentation and extraction in stainless steel vats at 23ËšC. Total extraction time 12 days. Full malolactic fermentation in barriques. Maturation in second-hand French barriques for 12 months. The wine matured in bottle for a further 2 months in our cellar.


Ratings & Reviews


Wine Spectator Magazine (2016 Vintage):
"An oaky, medium-bodied red, with vanilla and spice notes accenting the ripe mulberry and black cherry fruit. Offers a toasty, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases made, 4,500 cases imported." - AN
