Viniculture and Vinification
100% estate grown, handpicked grapes from our Gipsy Hill and Uberland Hill vineyards were gentle destemmed and crushed into stainless steel automated maceration/fermentation tanks and fermented for 2 weeks at 25 ◦C. Gently pressed while still fermenting, the juice is then cooled to -2° C to stop the fermentation with residual sugar and blended also with some dry wine that has been aged on oak staves for 3 months.
Soft and inviting, with a dense core of chocolate cake, cherry and dusky spice flavours that sprawl over a layer of supple tannins. It all melds together on the finish, shooting off sparks of vanilla and raspberry.
We recommend this wine with
Dark Chocolate mousse or Forest fruit flan.
