Deep red-purple with aromas of bramble & spice. The palate has dark berry fruits, a touch of cinnamon & a whisper of oak. Fine supple, savoury tannins & great length. A perfect blend of power & grace.
Food match : Mushroom Risotto with a little truffle oil
This wine is made from a single patch of MV6 – rows 33 – 35. The bunches are destemmed but the resulting skin and juice mix contains 95% whole berries. A 4 day pre-fermentation cold soak preceded a natural ferment with no yeast being added. The wines were pressed in our gentle air bag press (see winemakers diary under the Cellar Door web page) and then aged in French oak barrels from a range of tonnelleries.
Chemistry: 13..5% Alcohol by Volume, pH 3.55 and Total Acid of 6.0g/L
