A silky, fruit -driven, medium bodied red wine. Flavours of plums, black, spice and violets combine with firm tannins and toasty oak. This wine is designed to be approachable in its youth and is ultimately a wine to be enjoyed over the next five years.
This wine is predominantly Merlot (81%) blended with (13%) Malbec and Cabernet Franc(6%) . The blend is made from multiple parcels individually matured separately up until blending in February 2015. After selective picking the grapes were fermented on their skins and hand plunged every 4 hours. This wine underwent a cooler ferment for lively fruit pick -up and a fuller mouth feel. The grapes were given extended maceration for up to 4 weeks. The wine was then matured in French and American oak barrels before blending.
FOOD SUGGESTION Red meats or rich creamy pastas
