Hidden Valley Wines   Hidden Gems Red Blend
Bordeaux Blends (containing two or more of the following: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec). () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


The grapes of this blend were sourced from our vineyards on Hidden Valley and were picked at optimum ripeness, between 25 and 26°B. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and the wine was pressed just before dryness. After malolactic fermentation, the individual components were racked to 225L French oak barrels and left to mature for 16-18 months. Only 25% new oak barrels were used. No finings were necessary and only a light filtration was done at bottling
