TASTING NOTES

Intense ruby in the glass with notes of cherry, plum, raspberry and leather. Medium-bodied with flavours of cherry and raspberry with notes of rosemary, spice and licorice supporting young tannins and a balanced, savory finish. Enjoy now with grilled game, roasted fowl stuffed with dried fruit, hard cheeses and pastas with rich tomato-based sauces.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The grapes were harvested in early October exclusively from the Lakeshore Farm Vineyard to the northeast of the winery. After manual sorting on shaker tables to remove any unwanted fruit, leaves or insects, the grapes were crushed and destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with regular delestage to gently extract colour and structure. After 30 days skin contact, the wine was pressed and moved back to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation and aging until it was bottled in April 2019 following light fining and filtration.
