The Vineyards
The grapes came from old vineyards planted in1978. and new vineyards of selected clones
planted in 1998 in Clovelly soil. The vineyards are trellised and face North West.
 
The wine making
Grapes were received in the cellar between mid-March to the first week of April 2004 from
selected blocks of vineyards. After de-stalking the mash was inoculated with selected yeast
cultures and fermented on the skins for 7 days.The must was separated, the skins pressed and fermentation completed in stainless steel tanks.
After malolactic fermentation the young wine was transferred to 2/3 American and 1.3 French oak barrels, where it was matured for 24 months.
Wine Makerer's comments
Ruby red in colour, berry like with smoky nuances and a touch of tobacco with spicy vanilla undertones for a lingering finish.
