Tasting Notes

Intense purple in colour. Fresh aroma of blackberry and blackcurrant, melded with spicy notes of tobacco and hints of vanilla. Ripe fruit flavours. Velvety and light, this medium-bodied wine has a pleasing finish.

Food Matches

Turn up the heat with this one. Perfect with spiced lamb - especially lamb curries.

Vinification

The Carmenere grapes are harvested using both machines and hand-picking, with only the ripest grapes chosen. After arrival at the winery the grapes are de-stemmed, and fermented on the skins for 25 days in steel tanks at a controlled temperature, with a percentage of the red wine finishing ferment in small oak casks. The tank and oaked wine is then married together, transferred into used oak for a short time before settling, racking back into tank and then bottling after a light filtration.
