Region: Margaret River

Sub-Region: Wilyabrup

Cellaring Potential: This wine is drinking beautifully now and will reward with careful cellaring over the next 5-7 years.

Slow-braised beef or venison -
especially when cooked in red wine.

Machine Harvested fruit is delivered to the winery where it is crushed and destemmed to a fermenter. Selected yeast is added and a controlled fermentation is conducted over a 14 day period.

During fermentation the wine is pumped over the skins twice a day to facilitate colour and tannin extraction.

A period of post fermentation maceration on-skins has been employed for this batch to further ameliorate and soften the tannin profile of this wine.

Following fermentation and extended skin contact the wine is matured in a mix of oak barrels and tank. After maturation the wine is assembled before a light egg fining and filtration prior to bottling.

Alc%: 14.5%
pH: 3.58
