Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand harvested over the months of September and October. Merlot being the first variety to be received by the winery for the blend. Grape bunches are de-stemmed and crushed to tank and then cold soaked for 4 days before inoculation with Bordeaux selected yeast strain. During fermentation pump overs are done every 4 hours for the extraction of colour and flavour. Aged for 15 months in a combination of American oak (50%) and French oak (50%) in 3rd and 4th fill barrels. Each variety has been vinified and barrel matured separately. The final blend only made once the wine is removed from barrel.
Food Pairing Notes
Lasagna, grilled meats and roasted chicken dishes
