TASTING NOTES
Progressive techniques such as overhead fermenters, pump-overs and gravity flow allow for the extraction of fully developed flavours and soft ripe tannins without compensating the tension and elegance captured from the various cabernet slopes. Here especially, the climate plays a significant role to allow great fruit expression and classic essences of cedar, brambles and toasted tobacco.
HARVESTING
The grapes were harvested between the 7th of March and the 15th
of March 2013 at 23 – 24°B.
WINEMAKING & MATURATION
Fermented in overhead retort-shaped, stainless steel fermenters. Pump-overs were done three times daily during fermentation. Selected tanks received extended maceration on the skins after fermentation. The use of gravity and gentle pressing ensure full flavoured wines with soft, balanced tannins. The wine was racked into barrels where it underwent malolactic fermentation. After further racking it spent 18 months in new and used French oak barrels, before being lightly filtered prior to bottling.
