Tasting Profile

October 2018

The fruit was completely destemmed into a stainless-steel vat, with a focus on whole berry fermentation. Fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 14 days. The wine underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The maturation period was six months in an old large-format French oak foudre. It was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration and minimal SO2

Vibrant light red in colour. Attractive fresh raspberry and red cherry aromatics jump immediately from the glass. Juicy, bright and drinkable, the palate is laden with strawberry sorbet and orange peel flavours. Gentle tannins and frisky acidity lead to a soft and delicious finish. Drink now.

Alcohol 13%

The Vintage

Following a wet Winter, budburst commenced relatively late in mid September. The Winter rainfall set up the vineyards well for Spring with overall temperatures during Spring slightly higher than average accompanied by below average rainfall. Flowering commenced mid late November with ideal weather conditions, resulting in one of the best fruit sets in many years. The mild to warm conditions continued throughout Summer and veraison commenced in mid January. Harvest delivered fruitful crop loads matched with very stable weather conditions, ensuring vine performance and good ripeness. Picking commenced late February and the viticultural team worked steadily until the beginning of April delivering outstanding fruit. The white wines display excellent acidity, depth and intense fruit flavours. The red wines look poised and elegant with powerful aromatics and a great balance between tannin and acid.
