AGE OF VINES : 14 - 54 Years TRELLISING : Bush Vines Grapes were harvested at 25.5 °B. Juice spent 6 hours on the skins before inoculation. Fermentation took place at 26°C - 28°C for about 4 days. Pumped over 3 times daily during alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation was completed in tanks. Wine then spent 24 months in French oak barrels (100% new). DESCRIPTION: Concentrated blackberry, plum, chocolate and vanilla flavours on the nose follow through to a palate which is packed with abundant fruit. Well integrated oak flavours. A supple mouth feel and silky tannin structure. A bold intense beautifully balanced wine. Can mature for another 10 years under good storage conditions.
