Winemaker’s comment

Windy growing and ripening periods resulted in smaller berries, which will lead to good concentration of both colour and flavor making 2020 vintage an exceptional year for red wines.

 


Vinification

All the grapes were harvested by hand. Each vineyard block was vinified and kept separate through the entire maturation process. The grapes were crushed and immediately prepared for fermentation. Pump-overs were done 4 times a day with punch downs. Extended post maceration was done resulting on the wine being 30 days on the skins. This allows the wine to produce softer more approachable tannins. The wine was pressed into French oak barrels and left for aging for 12 months before blending and bottling took place.


Soil & Terroir

The soil consists of decomposed gravel and sandstone deposits with a clay subsoil. Resulting in well drained low yielding soil. The aspect is North facing resulting in maximum sun exposure. This allows the berries to ripen perfectly without green herbaceous characters from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Tasting note

This wine shows notes of cigar box, tobacco leaf, pencil shaving, graphite, and black currant on the nose. The palate has a lot to give with big bold tannin structure and notes from the nose with some cedar wood. Great to consume when its young and will age beautifully
