Winemaking:


The fruit was picked in the early hours of the morning and allowed to soak in its own juice for a few days once put into open top fermenters. The wine was then inoculated with a selected yeast and got plunged twice a day until all sugar was fermented to alcohol. We left the berries again for a week undisturbed before pressing them off. After settling the young wine, it was put into old 500L barrels and left to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature until prepared for bottling.

Appearance:

Dry


Impressions:


Dark chocolate and cherry tones on the nose initially, with a hint of toasted nuts and spice on the palate complimented with a smooth chocolatey finish.
