Description

The wine displays typical characters of a cool climate, maritime-style Shiraz. This blend of Shiraz and Merlot shows aromas of dried herbs and black pepper on the nose with subtle sweet, ripe red fruit aromas. The elegant sweet fruit on the palate is complemented by the well-integrated tannin structure and a smooth, lingering ­nish.

Winemaking Notes

The Shiraz and Merlot were fermented separately and each component underwent cold maceration for two days. The juice was inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation lasted for seven days, during which it underwent regular pump overs. The wine was pressed after achieving the perfect balance and structure. Malolactic fermentation was done in tank and this blend of Shiraz and Merlot was wood-matured for four months in French oak.
