Production

East and north-south facing rows on alluvial soil at an altitude of 260m and approximately 10k from the sea. The blend is crafted from Merlot 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Cabernet Franc 11% and Petit Verdot 9%. Grapes were harvested by hand and berry sorted into stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation commenced spontaneously and was finished with selected yeasts. Extraction was done with a combination of punch-down, rack-and-return and pump-over methods. Batches were gently pressed and immediately racked to 4500L oak "foudre" where they completed malolactic fermentation. Blending took place after 12 months ageing.

Tasting notes

This mix of the 4 classic Bordeaux varieties is brim full of ripe bramble and plum fruit with dark curranty corners. Warm and spicy with the succulent black fruit nicely offset by cinnamon spice, fresh acidity and supple tannins.

Food match

Barbecued red meats, herby grilled chicken or even thick spicy south east Asian dishes.
