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.

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 50 % new French oak barrels after alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 12 months before blending and bottling.

Food pairing
