Dark red with magenta hues a delightful combination of mulberry aromas with a hint of cream ventures forth on first impression. The palate is full and soft displaying good berry fruit characters, black cherry, mulberry and plum, with good length. Great with just about any meat dish and fantastic with Pizza. – Winemarker’s notes.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Angove family’s own Nanya vineyards and premium growers in the region. Soils are predominantly red sandy loam over limestone, on gently undulating east west ridges. The grapes for this wine were picked at night to make sure that they were as cool as possible. Crushed to modern rotary fermenters the grapes were then allowed to macerate for 2 days before inoculation and fermentation. Pressed off skins 7 days later and allowed to go through the second malolactic fermentation. The wine has then had minimal handling prior to filtration for bottling.
