INAUGURAL VINTAGE

Tasting Notes This medium body red wine delights with ample acidity, silky smooth tannins and a long finish. With aromas of fresh cherries, dried cranberry, subtle eucalyptus, grilled fennel and cinnamon. Followed by a palette with flavours of cherry preserves and pastry, red currants and subtle oak. An exceedingly balanced and flavourful red wine.

Winemaking Notes The 2016 vintage was hot and dry with the vines also enjoying lots of sunshine. We call a vintage like this one “blessed by the wine gods” and the result is fruit with full ripe and rich flavours. The grapes are hand-harvested, individually fermented and aged in barrel a total of 18 months in French oak.  With 15% of the juice coming from grapes left to dry for 60 days after being picked in the traditional appassimento style. Drinking beautifully now, the aging potential for this vintage is conservatively estimated at 5 years.

Wine and Food Pairing A perfect bottle to enjoy with fresh fig and prosciutto, pappardelle, rack of Lamb, wild mushroom risotto, charcuterie and firm aged cheeses, or traditional Margherita pizza.
