2017 was an excellent vintage with great fruit intensity and concentration. The grapes were allowed to ripen to full phenolic ripeness, resulting in beautiful fruit expression and soft elegant tannin. The fermentation temperature peaked at 28°C with regular pump-overs to ensure even extraction. After fermentation the wine was pressed and racked to 100% 500l French oak barrels, where it matured for approximately 14months.

Barrel Treatment:Avg 14Months 


We’ve tried it with a few variations of lamb such as lamb loin chops spiced with salt, black pepper and rosemary, leg of lamb slow roasted, well salted, pepperedand served with roast potatoes, sweet potatoes and spicy gravy.   Ovenroasted vegetables with rosemary and garlic could be a vegan alternative.

At a pleasing 16 - 18° (not too cold and not our summer room temperature).

Harvest We harvest approximately six to eight tons per hectare which allows for concentrated plum, brambleberry and riper mulberry flavours with hints of pepper.

Vineyard South-Westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 230-250m above sea level. The vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system.
