hand sorted on a sorting table making sure only the best berries are going to tank. Cold-soaking for 3-4 days at
low temperatures. Fermentation took place at 24 degrees with regular pump overs. First phase of fermentation is with
natural yeast there after inoculated with saccharomyces cerevisiae. After fermentation, the wine is left on
the skins for 3 weeks before racked to barrel where malolactic fermentation takes place for up to 30 days. After
12 months of ageing, selected barrels are blended to create this fine wine.

combination. A sweet and smooth entry with juicy red berry flavors and dark chocolate to support the elegant
