Concentrated aromas of ripe dark fruits and chocolate with a hint of tobacco. The palate is full bodied, plump and juicy with sweet ripe fruit flavours supported by fine chalky tannins.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from two of our Hawkes Bay vineyards – Tantallon and Campbell Brook. The grapes were harvested from the respective vineyards and transported to our Riverview winery were they were crushed to open topped stainless steel fermentation vessels and inoculated with a range of yeast strains. The ferments were pumped over several times per day until dry and then allowed from 2 to 5 days extended maceration. The wine was then pressed off the skins and some was put to barrel where it was aged for 12 months before blending with components which had been matured in stainless steel. The wine was then transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for final blending and finishing.
