Opulent and rich, but savoury and smooth; the ideal blend of cool nights and bright sunshine, finished with precision.
Fermentation over twelve days on skins expressed varietal character and extracted generous, rounded tannins. Automated cap management and temperature control produced a wine of finesse. Carefully matured over thirty months in aged American Hogsheads.
The nose opens with savoury spices into ripe berries with rich earthy notes while the complexity from oak builds to a crescendo of nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, coconut, ripe plums, blackberries, and figs. The velvety tannins result in an immortal palate.
This wine will stand up to the test of time, open it now or be rewarded from years of careful cellaring.
