834 000

A perfectly integrated blend with great length that combines the spiciness of the Syrah, the fresh fruits of the Petit Verdot and the juiciness from the Merlot. The introduction is fresh and fruity with good acidity, evolving into riper flavours and herbaceous notes, with elegant tannins and light acids on the finish. It is very versatile and will complement numerous dishes such as hearty meat stews, lamb shank and Asian cuisine.

Winemaking process:

All grapes were hand-picked and brought to the cellar by horses. To ensure that only the best berries are used, all grapes are hand-sorted. It was then placed into our wooden fermenters via a gravity system. The Rhône varietals were whole-bunch fermented and the Bordeaux varietals were destemmed. The fermentation started naturally with yeast present on the grapes to enhance the flavours prevailing in the vineyards. Throughout the fermentation process, regular soft punch downs twice a day to gently and slowly extract the tannins. The wines spent around 30 days on the skins during which the tannins were able to soften. The varietals were aged separately in French oak. 600L Barrels for the Rhône varietals and 225L barrels for the Bordeaux varietals. Only 20% were new barrels to avoid the dominance of wood aromatics in our wines. After 18 months in barrel, we blended the Syrah (73%), Merlot (16%), and Petit Verdot (11%) together and kept it for another year in our wooden fermenters. This wine is unfined and gently filtered.
