TASTING NOTES: Bright redcurrants, dark cherries and boysenberries prominently feature with black cardamom, star anise, cinnamon quill and delicate violets in the background. Tightly framed palate with bright acidity and defined with plump cherries and blackcurrants. Subtle notes of chocolate, coffee and pepper notes lead to a structural finish with powdery tannins.
PRODUCTION NOTES: All of the fruit was fermented in open fermenters, 15% being whole bunches to extend the fermentation time. Open fermenters were plunged and pumped over daily and the wine run to new, one, and two year old barrels for malolactic fermentation and barrel maturation.
