Description:  Mid-ruby in colour with a garnet hue. Aromas of ripe plum, raspberry and cherry fruit with savoury oak char and spice. This is a medium-bodied wine with silky, velvety tannins and a soft, plush texture. The fruit and savoury oak flavours persist on the lengthy finish.

The fruit for this wine was both hand-picked and machine harvested in the cool Marlborough autumn mornings. It was later de-stemmed and transferred to various open top fermenting vats in the winery. The fruit was then left to cold soak for 5-6 days prior to fermentation. Fermentation was carried out with selected yeast in small vats. Extraction was done by hand-plunging (pigeage) 3-4 times daily to ensure gentle colour and flavour extraction. The temperature was allowed to peak at 32°C.
The wine was then pressed off as soon as it reached dryness, and then racked to 1, 2 and 3 year old French oak barrels. The heavy pressings were kept separate. The wine was left to mature in barrel and underwent spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation in spring.

Wine has yet to be filtered, but can be made bottle ready.
