Viticulture and Vinification
100% estate grown grapes from our Gipsy Hill and Izvin vineyards. Gently destemmed and crushed, the grapes were cold macerated for 2 days at 5°C before being inoculated with selected yeast for the alcoholic fermentation which took 3 weeks at 27°C. Gently pressed, centrifuged and then put through a full malolactic fermentation, the wine was then matured for 12 months in 2 year old French oak barriques of 225 L before bottling.
Incredible richness, density and concentration, with a tight backbone. The core chocolate brownie, wild berry and raspberry are ripe and effusive, with hints of mint and cranberry and touches of cloves and nutmeg. The finish sails on, returning to the rich flavour themes that are woven together in a tight yet seamless and persistent manner.
We recommend this wine with:
Powerful Pasta dishes and roasted red meats.
Serving temperature: 14°C - 16°C
