Estate Red Blend 2015

Estate Red Blend 2015

Our Estate Red Blend 2015 was made as elegant and terroir specific as possible. Using our new reverse tronconic tanks has allowed for maximum fruit expression during the fermentation process. Optimizing barrel selection and aging of the wine has also been a big focus in 2015.

Each parcel is carefully identified and blocks are split into multiple portions in order to harvest at the perfect ripeness. The grapes are then bunch and berry sorted to ensure that only the healthiest berries are selected. Malo-lactic fermentation takes place in 40 % new French oak barrels after alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 12 months before blending and bottling.

Tasting Notes

Intense and deep ruby red in colour with rich aromas of black fruit and elegant notes of sandalwood. The palate is full bodied and layered. Well integrated tannins give the wine a toned and precise structure. The wine concludes with a long velvety finish.

Maturation

Drink now but this wine is made to age for 5 to 10 years.
