Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this 100% estate grown wine were hand picked from select rows with low cropping levels in our Dry Creek Vineyard. The crushed and destemmed grapes received a 3-day soak, followed by a combination of pumpovers and punchdowns every 4 hours, and finally a 8-day extended maceration on the skins, to extract maximum flavour and colour. The wine was aged in carefully curated French oak barrels for 15 months, of which 55% were new.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this versatile wine on its own by the fireplace, or pair with grilled steak, roasted eggplant, and tomato-based sauces.
