Vineyards are carefully selected for a balance of fruit weight and ripeness. Harvest is carried out in the cool of the morning. Fruit is then carefully destemmed into Potters and fermented at 25-30?°C over 7-8 days. Pressed, racked and matured in new and older hogs head barrels for 12 months. Approximately 30% was kept in tank to retain those lovely fruits to blend with the oak matured portions.
Big dark colour in the glass with blackberry fruit on the nose and an excellent concentrated, but balanced mouthful to follow. Richly smooth, rounded with a peppery tang - designed for hearty meat and vegetable dishes.
