Enjoy now or cellar 10-15 years
64% Cabernet Sauvignon. 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc
Maple syrup glazed ham; Moroccan spitroasted lamb; salted caramel mud cake.
Perfumed candied violets, cloves and black currant, with an inviting meaty note and hints of cocoa.
Medium to full bodied with sweet ripe fruits of mulberry, plums and currants. The structure is fine with cocoa powder soft tannins providing great length and intensity of flavour balanced by a subtle mix of roasted spices.
After the fruit was destemmed and berry sorted, individual vineyard batches were fermented on skins for up to 30 days. At the desired balance of fruit and tannin extraction, each batch was gently basket pressed, with harder pressings kept aside. The individual parcels were racked to oak following pressing for malolactic fermentation. Regular rackings over a 14 month period ensured the individual wines were at their best prior to blending. The wines were matured in selected Bordeaux coopered barriques of which 13% were new.
