Winery Tasting Notes

Colour - Bright red tawny, garnet hues.

Palate - Soft and rounded with luscious mid-palate and a sweet, lingering finish

Aroma - Raisin, dried fruits, rancio and hints of vanillian oak.

Peak Drinking - Best consumed within one year of opening.

Vinification and Maturation - The grape were harvested, crushed and then fermented on skins for 10 days to extract colour and fine tannins. Partial fortification on skins using neutral spirit, to aid in integration, further flavour enhancement and overall complexity. Wine was drained and pressed and the final fortification completed. Portions of this wine were aged in old oak to promote development of rancio characters. Whereas, others were stored in tank to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. Blending took place using components from both old-oak within a solera system and those stored in tank. Wine was then cold stabilized, filtered and stored in tank prior to bottling.
