This is a deeply coloured and full bodied, classic Hawkes Bay red blend.
The bouquet shows perfumed aromas of dark fruits, dried herbs and subtle oak spice.
The palate is softly textured with smooth supple tannins.
The different parcels were destemmed and crushed to our fermenters then inoculated with selected yeast strains. Ferments were plunged to gently extract tannins and colour from the skins. Post ferment, the wine was pressed to tank and barrel for malolactic fermentation. Individual varieties were aged separately in barrel for 16 months prior to blending and bottling.
