This wine is all about a pure expression of fruit. Aromas of cranberry and plum, the palate has bright berry fruits. A perfect match with pasta or pizza dishes, or match with BBQ’d meats. A lovely food wine, drinks brilliantly now, but will continue to develop.
Colour: Bright ruby red.
Aroma: Lifted and fragrant. Aromas of cranberry and plum.
Palate: Flavours of bright red berry fruits, and a spicy/savoury component from the Malbec. Lovely mouthfeel with soft but firm tannins.
Harvested on – 25th March to 8th April 2012
Winemaking – Harvested across a range of days to optimize ripeness. Each batch was gently destemmed and transferred to open-top fermenters, and then plunged three times a day during fermentation. Once dry the wine was transferred primarily to steel tanks to preserve the fruit aromatics, with a small proportion aged in older French oak barrels.
Bottled on – 20th December 2012
Drink – Now or cellar 2-5 years.
