||Began in early September for Merlot and ended in late September for our late-ripening variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were picked by hand into 12kg crates, with separate harvest by variety and parcel.
||Quality selection of grapes preceded destemming, followed by maceration in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. Fermentation began at this point and lasted for about two weeks, followed by racking and transfer to oak barrels for malolactic fermentation.
||18 months in barrique, and the wine rested a further 6 months in bottle.
||Dishes of red and white meats, roasts or mature cheeses.
