The deep garnet hue of this Carmenere hints at the intensity of aroma and flavour to come. Complex aromas of ripe black fruits and spice are then discovered in the glass. Flavours of plump Doris plum, fruit cake and black currant are enveloped by the rich, velvety palate.

 

Clear

Wonderfully deep garnet, this Carmenere exhibits complex aromas of ripe black fruits and spice. Flavours of plump Doris plum, fruit cake, and black currant are enveloped by the rich, velvety palate. Fine tannins and excellent structure give length and longevity.


Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy

Selectively hand-harvested and then gently destemmed, partially crushed Carmenere berries were then plunged twice daily in a small open fermenter while complexity enhancing yeast conducted the ferment. Once dry, the Carmenere skins were pressed from the wine, and the wine was transferred to American and French barriques for malolactic fermentation. After 18 months of maturation in wood, this wine required no additional fining before filtration and bottling.
