Winemaker Notes

Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvest at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins. Fruit was fermented and left on skins in static and rotary fermenters for seven days to maximise colour and flavour extraction. After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged on French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling.
