The vineyards
 
The grapes came from vineyards planted at 185 to 210 meters above sea level in decomposed granite.The trellised vines were planted from 1990 to 1991.
 
The Wine Making
 
Grapes from selected blocks of vineyards where hand-picked at the end of March 2006 at a average balling of 25.5 deg After inoculation of selected yeast cultures, the wine fermented to total dryness on the skins and was left for a further 2 weeks on the skins. During this period malolactic fermentation was also completed. The grapes where pressed and the young wine was transferred to French oak barrels of selected coopers and matured for 18 months. During maturation the wine was pumped over once, barrels cleaned and transferred back for further maturation.
 
Winemaker's Comments
 
Dark garnet in colour, smoky, plumy, cherries upfront, well supported with memorable smooth toffee, butterscotch on the palate, well integrated, with savoury wood aroma's. A good accompaniment for red meat dishes such as fillet steak.
