Fermentation: All blocks were vinified separately using different
techniques—fermentation on the skins in opentop
stainless steel tanks. Regular pump-overs
were done during fermentation. Malolactic
fermentation in stainless steel, thanks. 80% of the
wine was racked into barrels for ageing. 20% kept
unoaked in a stainless steel tank.
Barrel Maturation: It is matured in 300L French oak barrels for 18
months. Selected cooperages and toasting levels
were used. 30% new, 30% second and 40% third
Tank Maturation: Spent 18 months in stainless steel thanks to fine
lees after removal from barrels and blending.
The wine has an inviting nose of cinnamon and white pepper layered with berries. Red fruit dominates the palate with an intriguing sweet and sour sensation of red plum and early ripening strawberry. The wine has a lovely punchy texture with grippy tannins and pointed acidity. It finishes where it starts with hints of cinnamon and white pepper which carry on long after the last sip.
Delicious with a roast leg of lamb, veggies, and grilled potatoes. If cooled down a few degrees, it gives enticing nuances of spice which pairs perfectly with an Italian-inspired cheese platter.
