Aroma

A fragrant nose of fresh blueberries, a little vanilla, mixed spice, cedar and a floral hint of perfumed violets.

Taste

Approachable, graceful palate of mulberry and blueberry compote. Up front, juicy flesh of plum with underlying notes of chocolate coated coffee beans, mint, black pepper, and a hint of earthy truffles. A solid backbone of supporting acidity extends these characters towards the finish.

Cellaring Potential

Drinking well now, but can hold through 2028.

Food Matching

This medium bodied wines’ great acidity and soft tannins allow a beautiful match to Korean Barbecue meats, and are also a fantastic pair with spicy Chinese cuisine. pH – 3.65 : Acid – 6.7 : Sugar – Dry

Vinification

Fermentation was started in stainless steel static fermenters; letting the ferment warm itself to 28C; and then bringing it back to a nice cool long ferment of 12 days at 22C; retaining those pretty aromatics. Gently pressing of the parcels off of their skins was achieved through an airbag press.

Aging

Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was sent for maturation in approximately 25% new and 75% older French and American oak hogsheads, and some older large format French oak vats for 14 months prior to preparation for bottling.
