Tasting notes and food pairing ideas:
The aromas are full of cocoa, blackberry, blueberry and smoky, vanilla laden oak. The weight on the tongue is impressive; the ripe fruit engulfs your palate with a richness you'd expect from a much more expensive wine. The finish is seductive; long; perfectly complete. The depth of flavours pair beautifully with roast lamb, grilled venison, seared salmon or BBQ chicken.
Wine makers destemmed and lightly crushed high quality Pinot Noir grapes from 4 different source blocks in to stainless steel tanks for a cold soak period of 7 days. Primary fermentation took place at warm temperatures, and was ‘pumped over’ several times a day to achieve maximum colour and flavour extraction. Malolactic took place in a mixture of old and newer French Oak barrels, with a maturation period of 10 months in barrel. Finally, the wine was cold stabilised and lightly filtered before bottling.
