This wine is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.

80% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot

The Merlot is grown on clay loam with small gravel limestone sub soils. The vines are 15 years old and are trained to a single cordon with a single foliage wire. The Petit Verdot is planted on dark clay loam soil. The vines are 10 years old and are also trained to a single cordon with a single foliage wire

Both the Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes were harvested at between 14.0 to 14.5 Be, insuring that flavour and colour indices were at the maximum. The must was fermented at temperatures between 18 and 25 degrees in order to help extract flavour and colour components from the grape skins. The skins were then gently pressed, with only the free run fraction being kept insuring that soft tannins would be present in the final wine. The wine was then stored on French and American oak staves and allowed to mature prior to bottling.

Winemaker's Tasting Note
Deep vibrant in colour. Intense ripe fruit mixes with mocha oak on the nose. Having full length and velvety mouth full of black cherry and raspberry fruit integrated with lingering oak.
