- Winemaking Notes
The grapes when harvested are cold soaked for 2 days at 5 degrees and an inoculated Rhone yeast is added to kick start the fermentation process. The Grenache and Mourvedre are worked softly to ensure good fruit characteristics. The Shiraz is intensely pumped over to encourage malolactic fermentation, this converts the tart malic acids into softer lactic acids. The Shiraz will then spend 18 month in 100% new French Oak barrels. The Grenache and Mourvedre spend 12 months in 4 – 5 year old French Oak Barrels.
- Food Pairing
Enjoy with roast duck, turkey or spatchcock. Drink now or cellar for 10 years.
