The Syrah grapes were naturally fermented with aerated pump-overs, followed by 1 week extended maceration and Malolactic Fermentation (MLF) in oak barrels.
Deep purple, inky hues characterise this wine. The aromas are initially savoury and meaty, developing into a very concentrated and complex perfume with prominent spicy notes of cloves, cinnamon and violets.
The palate entry exhibits tremendous concentration of flavour and has gratifying length.
