Rich, plummy Merlot complements the minty, blackcurrant flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon. The peppery, dark berry fruit of the Shiraz adds a spicy complexity to the blend.

In the Cellar

Fermented in overhead retort-shaped, stainless steel fermentors. Pump-overs were done three times daily during fermentation.  The use of gravity and gentle pressing ensure full-flavoured wines with soft, balanced tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz all underwent malo-lactic fermentation in the barrel. The various portions of the blend spent 16-18 months in 225 litre French oak barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers).
