Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) This powerful and full-bodied wine is perfect as the colder months come rolling; lots of ripe black fruit and liquorice flavours on a long lush finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The wine undergoes 4 days of pre-soaking followed by 7 days of fermentation in steel vats at a controlled temperature of 82.4ºF. There is then a 3 week period of maceration at 86ºF. The juice is free run, and spends 18 months in one-, two- and three-year-old oak barrels. The wine is not filtered but is fined.

    a little harsh initially. decanted it for an hour may need more time. got better in the glass as it aerated even further hence my longer decanting theory.
