VINTAGE CONDITIONS
An mild winter preceded a warm spring. A significant hot spell in January February and March led to early picking of whites resulting in lower alcohols. Vintage proceeded smoothly and the reds fully ripened producing full bodied, robust wines.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

MATURATION
This wine has been matured for 15 months in 90% French and 10% Hungarian oak barrels – 33% new with the remainder in seasoned oak barrels.

COLOUR
Deep red with purple edges in brilliant condition.

NOSE
Mulberries and plums. There is also cedar from oak, cocoa and some chickory.

PALATE
A classic Merlot. Although not as complex as Cabernet wines, there is power here. Mulberries plums and some black olives give the palate loads of sweet fruit. The tannins are firm but in balance.
