Tasting Notes

Type & Size of Oak Barrels: This blend matured for 12 months in 2nd and 3rd fill French and American oak barrels. When Bottled: May 2013 with only a course filtration prior to bottling. Maturation Potential: up to 5 years

Food Pairing

The natural balance of it will compliment game, red meat or full flavoured meat dishes as well as pasta and pizza.

Cellaring Notes

This blend is ready to enjoy now, but will mature into a more complex wine. An ideal wine for better casual meals and occasions.

Vinification

Selected full ripe grapes fermented with yeast and no sulphur, in open tanks at 29°C. Punching down and pumping over four times daily and skin contact after fermentation for two weeks was allowed. Malolactic fermentation finished with natural bacteria in the tank.
