These grapes are from Malmesbury shale soil, and they never have chance to rest; always pushing their roots further down to find water. Bunches are destemmed and placed in open-top fermenters.Turbo pigeage is done 4 times daily; this is a soft, delicate way of wetting the cap and aerating the wine. Malolactic fermentation follows and then the wine is kept on fine lees until bottling.
A medium-bodied red, packed with plummy sweet fruit. Perfectly balanced and structured with excellent fruit flavours right to the finish.
Try with roast beef or game and seasonal vegetables.
