Dry, youthful and full bodied.
Tasting Notes: This dry and full bodied wine is deep red in colour and the youthful flavour of the wine is complemented by the full, fine palate which is enhanced by maturation in American oak hogsheads and a light tannin finish.
Fruit was machine harvested during the cool night conditions.
The parcels were fermented separately in stainless steel vertical fermenters on premium french oak for 4-6 days between 26-30ºC. Teh wine was then pressed at 1 Baume and left to ferment until dry, then racked onto French oak for malolactic fermentation. Wine was then clarified via centrifuge into stainless steel storage with the addition of premium French oak staves for approximately 4 months. Once these parcels were completed the final blend was created and prepared for bottling.
