Our red wine vinification is very traditional. Hand harvested, before being destemmed
and sorted on a vibrating table, the grapes were destemmed and not crushed. Once wild fermentation had started the skin cap was softly punched down 2-3 times per a day to achieve desired extraction.
Post fermentation the wines underwent extended maceration; the wines were tasted
regularly in order to assess the extraction level and when to press-off. Once pressed off, the wines undergo spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrel where they were aged for 12-16 months, in 500L French oak barrels, of which 18% is new oak.
SYRAH: Syrah is dense and powerful, but with bags of ripe red berry fruit and spice. It provides the warmth in the blend that is a perfect counterpoint to the coolness of the Iona contributions.
CABERNET SAUVIGNON: The typical flavour profile is classically Cabernet with deep, dark cassis and cigar box aromas.
MOURVÈDRE: Lends weight, spice and wild berries to the blend.
PETIT VERDOT: It is very tannic and dark, but brings great colour, structure and aromatics to the blend.
