This is a blend of 46% Merlot, 45% Malbec and 9% Cabernet Franc from our Gimblett and Triangle Vineyards. The grapes were hand harvested, carefully destemmed and fermented in numerous small batch ferments over a 3 week period then gently pressed to oak barriques. The wine received 12 months in French oak. 28% new. After blending in April 2014 it received another 6 months ageing (on fine lees) in tank. A slow fermentation and minimal intervention has created a full, ripe and well balanced wine with a core of ripe fruit and excellent structure.
