The wine shows red fruit, dark cherries with an underlying chalkiness evident from the soil these vines grow in. The fruit follows through on the elegant and well balanced palate. The wine's quality is complimented by the firm and concentrated tannin structure which will allow for further maturation in bottle.

Picked in the early mornings to maintain the night temperature, the grapes were pre-chilled to 4 degrees before being de-stemmed and hand sorted on sorting tables. The grapes were cold soaked for 48 hours prior to fermentation.
After partial natural fermentation, only the best quality free run juice was drained to barrels for malolactic fermentation and ageing. The wine aged for 12 months in old 500L French oak barrels as well as in 2nd and 3rd fill French 225L barrels.
Drinking well now, and will develop well for 5 years.
