The Wine:
Hand harvested, the Cabernet is berry sorted and the Malbec is bunch sorted. The Cabernet is destemmed, berry sorted and then crushed into the half-tonne open fermenters. A small amount of Cabernet (5%) was whole bunch fermented to bring extra lift and perfume to the wine. Malbec is destemmed to the small fermenters and hand plunged twice daily. Maturation in French Bordeaux shaped barrels; only 15% new oak to enhance the juicy fruit palate and immediate enjoyment. Blending immediately before bottling.

Perfume is the signature of this wine with lifted violets, bramble and redcurrant fruits. Bright fruit flavours include cranberry, mulberries and blueberries. Fresh nettle presents a leafy lift and clove spices dance with vibrant acidity and the elegant fruit drive. The Malbec brings the energy and crunch to the wine. A wine of wonderful fruit purity.
