In a Nutshell

Soft and easy going pizza red.

Tasting Notes

This wine is ruby red with garnet highlights and is packed with juicy fruit characters of red berries and plum with hints of vanilla. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with ripe plum fruit and subtle tannins. Well-balanced with good structure and a long finish, a particularly tasty vintage!

Production Notes

The grapes were hand picked. On arrival at the winery, the fruit was destemmed and crushed, before a cold maceration for four days. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled, stainless steel and concrete tanks at temperatures of 24-26°C and lasted for 10 days. Continuous racking and punch-downs were performed to optimize extraction of flavours from the skins. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, which softened the acidity and added complexity to the final wine.
