Bouquet

The nose shows ripe plum and spicy fruitcake aromas, with hints of currant, chocolate and well handled cedary oak.

Winemkaing

Parcels of fruit with generous varietal flavours were carefully selected during vineyard assessments by our winemakers. Harvest dates were determined on the basis of optimum fruit flavour intensity, sugar/acid balance and tannin ripeness. After harvest and transport to the winery, fruit was de-stemmed and crushed to different fermenter types. A carefully selected yeast strain was chosen to inoculate the must, with fermentation carried out at temperatures of 18°C to 26°C. This temperature range allowed sufficient extraction of colour and flavour from the skins, while retaining freshness. Twice daily fermentation tastings allowed winemakers to choose the optimum method and frequency of cap management for individual fermenters. This was adjusted as required throughout the ferment. The individual parcels were pressed off skins when optimal colour and flavour intensity were attained, so as to create a soft, velvety tannin profile. Once pressed, the base wines were centrifuged as soon as possible, removing fermentation solids and ensuring freshness of fruit characters for the blend. The wines were matured separately before final review and allocation to the blend.
