Style

Style

This wine is rich, deep and purple/ red in colour with a generous bouquet of pepper and spicy red fruits. The nose offers a complex, bouquet of fruit and spice, with coconut and blackcurrant,
enhanced by toasty cigar box nuances produced by oak maturation. The palate is a highlight of the wine exhibiting bright black cherry, balanced by a leathery earthiness with fine tannins.

Fruit

The fruit for this wine was harvested from the D’Aloia vineyards with careful row selection yielding the best possible parcels for use in this blend. The fruit was harvested within the range of
14.5 to 15.0 Baume, once it had developed a full intensity and complexity of flavours, embodied by a full rounded tannic structure, important for mouthfeel and long, complex flavours on the
finish.

Vinification

Vinification

The grapes were crushed and fermented on skins under controlled temperatures for extraction of deep colour, fruit flavours and to produce a rich full bodied structure. The fermenting wine was drained and gently pressed from skins once dry. The wine was stored under controlled temperature conditions to preserve fresh fruit characters. Free run wine was used in preference
to the pressing fraction to avoid any harshness and to maintain the clarity of the fruit character.
