    Winemaker's Notes

    Upfront, ripe juicy raspberries, cherries and tobacco leaf. Soft, round tannins and a delicious lingering finish with hints of oak. A very rewarding wine at this level.

    Winemaking: Crushed and de-stemmed into closed fermenters. Inoulated 1 day after crushing. Maximum fermentation temperature 32°C. Pumped over 2 x per day, incorporating oxygen.
