PALATE, Smooth, elegant, sexy and luscious! Dark fruits, blueberries, cherries and tobacco onentry support the overall palate of fruit and balanced acidity. Well-structured winewith rich elegant and refined tannins, enticing texture with a long finish. WINEMAKER’S NOTES, Hand selected bunches underwent individual berry selection to ensure only the bestfruit was fermented. 70% of the fruit was fermented as berries in barrel with theremainder fermented in stainless steel tank. All fermentation was spontaneous (wild)with no commercial yeast added. Matured for 27 months in 50% new French oakbarrels. A classic merlot which will continue to develop for the next 7-10 years.
