Winemaker's Notes:

Fragrant of Niagara cherry, blackcurrant, floral apple blossom and herbs and spice.  It’s silky and intensely fruity with flavours of cranberry, blueberry, raspberry and plum with a mineral underlay.

Made of grapes from our winery Estate site, harvested October 17th at average 20.8° Brix.

Whole grape clusters were directed to a stainless-steel tank.  Purged of oxygen, the tanks were sealed for one week of semi-carbonic maceration.  Primary fermentation under wild yeast was followed by 100 % malo-lactic conversion.  The wine aged for seven months in neutral 300-Litre French oak puncheons.

Only 134 cases were bottled in May, 2020.  Enjoy now to 2023.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%, residual sugar: 0.4 grams per litre titratable acidity: 6.8 grams per litre and pH: 3.44
