Tasting notes of winery's winemaker

Sometimes, the most wonderful creations emerge from random, happy hybrids. Take the cross-pollination of Peloursin and Syrah vines which french botanist Fran?ois Durif discovered. He produced a delicious new grape variety, worthy of his own name: Durif, also know as Petite Sirah. And there begins your journey of discovery: taste the fullbodied, generous and lively flavours, like blackcurrant and plums balanced with spicy toasted integrated oak.

Intense red with purple hues Bouquet: Intense youthful fresh ripe berry fruit flavours with some well integrated vanillian oak.

Palate: Full bodied dense ripe berry fruit flavours balanced with vanillian oak but yet long and smooth.

Vintage Conditions: Selected premium vineyards experienced ideal growing conditions producing wines of high sugar and flavours. Cool

nights providing ideal harvesting conditions.

Harvest Date: March, 2017

Vinification and Maturation: The grapes were picked at between 13.5 to 14.0 Baume to produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great wine. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of vessels to produce as much colour and flavour as possible. Portion of the wine underwent oak during fermentation and once dry, the remaining went to oak until the right balance was achieved. Careful tasting and blending, by our winemaker, help produce this wine of style and great value for money.

Serving Suggestion: Red wine casserole or a juicy steak with red onion jam.

Peak Drinking: This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further cellaring.
