Tasting Notes
  • A full-bodied structured wine with great aging potential. Layered flavor of spices, plum and red fruits, backed by violets, black current and pencil shavings. On the palate the fruit flavor follows through on the full-bodied structure of the wine that ends on a savory note.

  • The Shiraz grapes were harvested 2nd week of March at 24,5 Balling, cold soaked for 3 days until natural fermentation kicked and pumped over twice a day. The Cab Sauvignon were harvested on the 23rd March at 25 Balling, cold soaked for 3 days and then inoculated in the open fermenter. Initially pumped over 4 times a day and after first half of fermentation was complete only twice a day. Both varieties were pressed after total of 14 days on skins with malolactic in 40% new barrels and the balance in stainless steel. After racking all the wine were matured in 300L barrels for 18 months. The Cinsault and Grenache from the 2019 vintage were fermented in closed top tanks and pumped over twice a day in order to keep the freshness. Maturation in 4-5th fill barrels for 9 months. Blending was done in June 2019 and wine bottled in November.
