Vinification

Made exclusively from selected grapes hand picked at optimum maturity from our own vineyards.

Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 12 months in French (100%) oak barrels, and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak components. Bottled, unfined and lightly filtered in March 2011. May be subject to throw a deposit.

Our Winemaker´s comments

Blackcurrant aromas with hints of mint and eucalyptus. An intense and vibrant palate, with lots of youthful fruit and subtle notes of well integrated toasty oak. Very elegant with good texture, firm tannins and balancing acidity to finish. Drinks well now and will improve in bottle over the next 5 to 7 years.
