77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. <BR><br><b>Nose</b>: Vibrant aromas of mulberries, vanilla pod, freshly ground coffee and violets. <BR><b>Palate</b>: Rich and luscious with mulberries continuing through, black currants and dark chocolate with an elegant finish of bold tannin and soft, glazed plum.<BR><br><b>Winemaking note</b>: The Cabernet Sauvignon portion of the blend is de-stemmed and partially crushed, to ensure minimal berry degradation during the fermentation process. The Merlot is fully pressed to expose the delicate flesh and promote a more refined and elegant textural development. Cool fermentation results in a slower, more controlled extraction of tannin and flavour. The wine was aged in French oak for 10 months before bottling.
