Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were picked over a number of days to ensure perfect maturity of each block. The bunches were destalked and lightly crushed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. After malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine spent ten months in 15% new French and American oak barrels, before blending and bottling.

    Needs to be aerated to eliminate bitterness at the front but has a slight sweet and fruity finish with minimal dryness.
