Winemaking

The fruit was carefully harvested by variety, vineyard block and vigour zone before being destemmed directly to small open top and closed fermenters. Ferment management techniques included , hand plunging, pump overs and delestage for optimum extraction. After extended post ferment maceration, the component wines were drained and pressed off, settled and run to barriques where the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The component wines then rested in barriques for 14 months before the blend was assembled and bottled with no fining and only a light filtration.

Food recommendation

Pair with steaks, roast lamb and beefy casseroles.
