RED WINE

Tasting Note:

A Blend Of : 36% Syrah, 36 % Mourvedre and 28% Carignan

Mulberries and whiffs of cinnamon, dried herbs and  liquorice with very subtle spices in the background. Palate: Forward fruit at first, structured mid-palate, with lovely elegance, finishing with silky savory tannins.

Ageing: The wine can be keep in perfect shape for 5 years.

The grapes were destemmed, without crushing and tipped into an open tank under carbon dioxide blanket. The grapes were cold soaked for roughly ten days until the natural yeast started to ferment the sugars. The wine finished fermentation on the skins, with punch downs and pump overs 4 times a day. The wine was then left for a further week on the skins stabilizing the tannins (totaling 30 days) before being pressed directly into barrels. Here the wine underwent Malolactic fermentation in 40% new and 60% 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 18 months before being blended and bottled with a very coarse filtration.

Pairing:

Enjoy with Beef, Stews, Lamb, Venison, Pasta , Oxtail, Steak and African Cuisine.
