Grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed and pumped directly to stainless steel fermenting tanks. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 11 months on 32% new medium plus toasted French oak, giving it subtle vanilla and toffee flavours.
It shows bright red fruit characteristics along with deep colour, lush body, touches of vanilla and spearmint followed by delicate strawberry flavours. All these flavours are wrapped in a quite rich medium bodied framework, lush, rich and polished.
This is a food-friendly wine that can stand up to lamb or roast beef yet won't overpower lighter fish or pasta dishes.
Absolutely gorgeous with Charcuterie.
