Description: Appearance: Bright Ruby Red. Aroma: Superb red fruit aromas of raspberry and plum are supported with hints of black cherry and cedar. Palate: The ripe red fruit from the nose comes to the fore on the palate. There is a subtle fynbos undertone that backs up the medium to full mouth feel. This wine has a nice firm structure, with a lengthy red fruit finish.
Production: Vinification / Maturing : The wine is fermented at 28°C in a combination of open (punch down) and closed fermentors (pump over) for 7 to 14 days. Punch downs and pump overs occurred 5 times a day. Maturation occurred in 2nd and 3rd fill 300 liter French and American oak for 12 months. The varietals were matured separately; thereafter they were blended prior to bottling.
Food Combination: Red meat, lamb, camembert, roquefort cheese.
