Harvest 2012 

Harvest 2012, our 17th harvest. A record cold and dry winter, followed by a cold and wet spring.
Superlative summer. All in all, a quality driven vintage!

 

Vinification

Made exclusively from selected grapes hand picked at optimum maturity from our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 12 months in French (100%) oak barrels, and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak components. Bottled, unfined and lightly filtered in April 2014. May be subject to throw a deposit.



Tasting Notes
 

Complex wine displaying layered aromas of dark berries and spice, balanced by firm tannins and acidity.
