Tasting Note

Bright ruby red with attractive plum and black cherry aromas tinged with herbal tea, liquorice and gentle oak spice. Soft and juicy with mouth-filling summer berry flavours that finish smoothly with sour cherry succulence.

The grapes are selected from vineyards varying in age from 8 to 26 years. The vineyards are planted on very particular soil types to allow for the optimum vine growth balance.Picked by hand through February at an average ripeness of 25°B.

Each parcel of grapes was cold macerated on the skins for 24 hours before inoculation with selected yeast. Fermentation at controlled temperatures with regular gentle pump-overs and punch downs, followed by 8 to 12 months maturation on French oak before final blending, stabilisation and bottling.

Best served between 16°C and 18°C for easy social drinking with or without food.

Great with spicy sausages, roast lamb, spaghetti bolognaise, pizza or cottage pie.

"So great to be able to receive a regular delivery of good wine rather than the usual 12 bottle case sold by most 'wine clubs' "

- Terry Wharton Hood -

Great wine at a great time, everytime
