The clay soils give rise to a deep red / purple coloured approachable merlot, with soft sweet berry fruit, fine tannins and a silky finish.
The fruit was picked on flavour and tannin ripeness over a period of 10 days. After destemming and crushing the must was coldsoaked at 8°C for 72 hours prior to fermentation. At the completion of fermentation the wine was left on the skins for a further 3 to 6 weeks to build structure. A proportion of the wine was then stored in new 1 to 3 year old French oak barriques for 9 months prior to blending, fining, filtration and bottling.
Colour: Deep ruby red
Bouquet:
Intense varietal aromas of mulberry, raspberry and plum with a background of spicy French oak.
Palate:
Red and black fruit flavours supported by fine ripe tannins.
Cellaring: Up to 5 years.
