General Characteristics: Dry / Full Bodied
Vintage Conditions: Good winter rains followed by a warm growing season lead to good yields of fruit. A hot beginning to the harvest period accelerated the ripening with frantic harvesting ensuring to pick the fruit with the ideal flavour spectrum.
Winemaking: Fruit was closely monitored by the winemaker and harvested when freshness of varietal fruit and intensity of flavour was at its peak. Fruit was cold soaked for 24-48 hours to maximise colour and flavour extraction from the grapes, then fermented at 20.0-25.0 c for an average of 7-10 days.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 13.5% pH: 3.55 TA: 6.6
Cellaring: Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years.
