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
A blend of Cabernet, Malbec and Petit
Verdot, all sourced from the Estate. Each
component was fermented separately in
small batches with manual punch downs
being done every 2 hours during fermentation. The skins were left on the wine for 3
weeks before being basket pressed. Ageing
took place in 225L French oak barrels with
composition of 40% new, 40% 2nd fill and
20% 3rd fill.
Dark, intense ruby colour while the nose
shows complex smokey and savoury notes,
both dark and red fruits, vanilla, dark
chocolate and liquorice. Aged for 24
months in selected French oak, the palate
is bold and round with a grippy yet elegant
tannin and showcasing plums, malberries
and blueberries as the primary fruits.
