(2012 Vintage) The fruit was destemmed and macerated for 24 hours before pressing to stainless steel for fermentation. The fermentation was cool and long and malolactic was inhibited to retain the bright, fresh fruit character. Alcohol is 13.2%. Finished pH is 3.24. Residual sugar is 1.7 g/L.
International Wine Cellar(2006 Vintage) Bright red. Dark cherry, pungent herbs and fresh rose on the nose. Weighty dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are given grip by dusty tannins and energy by zesty minerals. Deftly combines richness and energy, finishing with good sweetness and persistence. This already offers appealing complexity and would be great with grilled red meats.
