Description

Deep purple and dark red appearance. Rich vibrant fruit, mostly plums and mulberries, dark chocolate and hints of wooding. Dark fruit and a rich mouth feel welcome you on entry to the palate. There is a feeling of decadence which is balanced by firm tannin, spice and toasty wood.

The 2008 vintage was a big, bold one due to very warm ripening conditions. The resultant wines have a dark fruit core and lots of structure.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with four hourly pump overs. We used cooler fermentation temperatures (24°C) to preserve and retain all the fruit complexity of this vintage.

Only two weeks of post-fermentation maceration was given as the tannin structure was starting to overpower the wine. Due to this bolder style it was decided that we use a higher percentage of new wood.

Malolactic fermentation took place on the skins whereafter the wine was pressed and put into 95% French Oak and 5% Hungarian Oak barrels. 30% of these barrels were new with the rest being 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill.

The wine remained in barrels for 18 months after which the wine was lightly filtered and bottled.
