After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where most of the juice was fermented at a range of temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours. A small portion of juice was fermented in old oak barriques to contribute to the weight and complexity of the wine. After extensive tasting trials by the winemakers, the wine was then blended, finished and bottled.
Elegant and intense nose - a dance of blackcurrant/passionfruit and complex smoky herbals. Textured and very long palate with exuberant, yet integrated, fruit. Citrus notes and flint add drive. Layered and powerful.
Can be enjoyed with a variety of food. Serve it with veal, seafood (brilliant with oysters) or a chicken dish such as a mild chicken korma with crispy popadoms.
