Description

DESCRIPTION

The grapes for this wine came from our Mount Panorama Estate 53% and Bella Luna vineyard 6% and as well as the 3 Views vineyard 41% on the Trunkey Rd (the highest altitude vineyard in the region). After a gentle basket press, the crushed fruit was transferred to an open fermenter.  After 9 days the fermentation was complete and the wine was lightly pressed with a basket press before spending about 14 month in 20% new oak.   A light egg white fining was carried out to soften the tannins prior to bottling in early September, 2016.

It is a medium-bodied wine displaying typical cassis and leafy characters as well as oak derived choco-mint on the bouquet. On the palate, there is a continuation of the choco-mint character with red fruits and dusty tannins, freshness and length.
