Forest floor and sweet fruit aromas
The palate shows characters of cherry and strawberry fruits. Silky tannin with nice herbaceous lift.
Warmer than usual January nights led to some varieties reaching maturity earlier than previous years. Late 07 rains & showers in January ensured vines in good health. A cooler February than usual allowed for good fruit development and varietal expression.
Fruit parcels individually selected by wine maker. Warm fermentation temperatures and gentle colour tannin extraction used to create a soft wine style. Whole bunches included in ferment.
Enjoy with duck or rabbit dishes
