  • Made:
    The fruit (30% Merlot and 70% Cabernet) was crush and destemmed into an open stainless steel fermenter for a two-day cold soak before fermentation. To keep the skins wet and to ensure maximum colour extraction the wine was pumped over twice daily. The wine was allowed to stay on skins post fermentation for a period of two weeks. The wine was pressed and Mal lactic fermentation was completed in old and new French oak barriques (225L) and puncheons (500L).
