In this classically styled blended wine, the flavors of blueberry, plum and cassis are
prominent, enhanced by toffee undertones. The wine is full-bodied, with a firm
tannin structure. An attractive garnet-red hue adds to the attraction.
The picking of these grapes was done when the grapes were at a ripe 25°
Balling. Grapes were harvested in the early part of the morning to preserve
freshness and fruit by the time we reach the cellar.
IN THE CELLAR
The grapes were destemmed but not crushed to preserve the fruit. The
grapes were fermented for 3 weeks on the skins before being pressed and
laid to rest in French oak barrels - 20% new and the balance went into 2nd
and 3rd fill. Here the malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was lightly
fined and filtered before being bottled.
IN THE VINEYARD
The grapes were harvested by hand into small 20kg cases. The grapes
were then transported in the cool of the morning to the Estate cellar.
Best enjoyed with slow-cooked beef, pot roast, barbecued beef, tagliatelle
pasta or Spaghetti Bolognese and braised lamb shank rosemary.
Easily accessible and should be enjoyed now or up to 5 years.
