Tasting Notes

Colour – Deep crimson Red. Aroma –The Shiraz is very prominent on the nose, with notes of cedar and cumin in the fore, backed up by cigar box and tobacco aromas. Palate – Showing more of an old world style with good complexity and classic blackberry, plum and mulberry flavours Variety: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Shiraz, 8% Merlot.

Cellaring Notes

Vinification

Primary fermentation took 7 days, followed by a 21 day maceration. Pumped over and the cap manually punched down 4 times a day. Malolactic fermentation in barrels. Following fermentation, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot clones are vinified separately. Matured in 85% French and 15% American oak barrels for 18 months, and then for a further 12 months in the bottle before release.
