Intense mulberry, plum and pepper spice with a hint of mint evolves to notes of Christmas cake and leather. The rich, juicy mid palate runs seamlessly onto a long, mineral finish.

The North-South facing vineyards used for this premium wine are grown in deep Oakleaf soils and are vertically shoot positioned. Irrigation is scheduled according to soil moisture availability. Leaf plucking in the bunch zone and a narrow canopy enables sufficient sunlight penetration into the canopy ensuring ripe tannins and optimal flavour at harvest.

Fermentation for each of the cultivars ran at 24-28 degrees Celsius and lasted for 5- 7 days. · Thereafter the wine was gently pressed and free run was consolidated with sufficient press fraction to enhance structure. · The wine was gravity fed to second and third fill French oak barrels for secondary malolactic fermentation. · Maturation in 225 liter French oak barrels lasted for 13 months. · The specially selected barrels for all 4 varieties were then blended and lightly filtered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing

This blend is immensely versatile and would complement dishes including braised lamb, game or veal as well as dark chocolate.
