The results of the superb 2015 vintage are immediately evident in this deep red wine with aromas of blackberry, juniper berry and chocolate plum. The palate is full bodied with sweet ripe fruit flavours supported by fine chalky tannins.
Fermented in both open fermenters and closed top fermenters, with maceration on skins for up to 30 days. This maceration on skins provides the wine with significant tannin structure and depth.
Post fermentation the wine was transferred to barrel for 12 months maturation in new and used French oak barriques.
Following maturation, the wine was blending, fined with egg whites and finally bottling in July 2014.
