Medium to full bodied red wine. Sweet fruit on the nose with hints of banana and mint. Multi layered palate with undertones of spice and vanilla – beautiful balance between primary fruit aroma and secondary oak matured flavours.
Notes: Malolactic fermentation in 300-litre French oak barrel, third and fourth fill barrels used, 14 months matured in barrel. Merlot harvested beginning of March (25ºB ), cold soaking for three days prior fermentation, fermented on skins for 12 days, kept on skins post fermentation for another seven days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation in 300-litre French oak barrel for 14 months – 35% first fill, 30% second fill and 35% third fill.
