A blend of the ripest red grapes. Red wine making in the Cornish cool climate is not easy but with ripe grapes and careful winemaking, we may surprise you with what can be achieved. This Carpe Diem Red is lightly oaked, youthful and fresh. The nose is full of ripe berry characters such as cherry and strawberry, yet the Regent also provides it with crushed black pepper, spice and a little blackcurrant leaf. An easy drinking medium bodied, food friendly red with good tannins and structure.
All grapes were left on the vine until as late as possible to achieve as high a ripeness level as possible. The grapes were picked by hand into small picking trays to avoid oxidation and spoilage caused by bruising or damage to the grapes. After gentle crushing, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel, open topped fermenters, where frequent punch downs were done to extract body, flavour and tannins.
After fermentation, the wine was racked and the grapes left in tank were gently pressed. Some but not all of this pressing wine was used in this blend, to provide weight and structure. After a short period of aging on lees, the wine was coarsely filtered and bottled.
