Destemmed and crushed fruit was cold soaked for 5 days before inoculation.  Primary fermentation was managed at 26 degC.

Ripe dark berries with hints of white pepper

PALATE: 
A full bodied wine with flavours of ripe plums, black cherries and fruits of the forest; complemented by leathery, earthy tones, dusty savoury tannins and a long finish.

Medium to long term cellaring will lead to softer tannins and more savoury complexity.
