After early morning harvesting of grapes, the whole berries were cold soaked for 24 hours in the cellar.
The juice was fermented dry in rotor tanks. The wine matured for 24 months in French oak barrels of
which 10% was new and the balance 2nd and 3rd fill.
This purple-red wine features some delicate hints of vanilla (from the oak) and a rich earthy and
leathery nose. The flavours follow through on the palate to a lingering and long finish. The wine has great
complexity with a delicate integration of the oak, which give the wine extra dimension.
