Grapes are hand selected and picked in the morning, as cold as possible and gently crushed. Fermentation is carried out in small temperature controlled stainless steel open fermenters.
Maceration lasts for about 12 - 14 days. This is followed by malo-lactic fermentation and once completed, by oak maturation in French and American oak classic barriques for over 30 months, as tradition in the best Shiraz Regions require.
colour Typical deep blackcurrant red almost black.
nose Hints of black pepper, lifted red berrie fruit aroma with a hint of rhubarb and liquorice.
palate Full-bodied, rich and spicy, red and black berrie fruit flavours with hints of vanilla and liquorice. Velvety mouth-fill with long and complex length, a sheer delight.
note Only hand selected first class natural corks have been used to guarantee perfect aging.
