Winemaking Techniques

After crushing, the grapes were left to cold soak for three days before being inoculated with known yeast strains. A controlled pump-over schedule was followed to extract intense colour without harsh tannins. The wine was fermented on the skins for eight days followed by malolactic fermentation in the tank. The wine was matured on French oak staves for 10 months.

Vineyards

The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.

Vintage Conditions

Bud break were 7 to 10 days earlier compared to the 2021 vintage, giving rise to earlier flowering and harvest. Good widespread rains at the beginning of November had a very positive effect on set and was a contributing factor to a better season. The cool summer conditions gave the 2021 season a start with a slower ripening period and grapes reached phenolic ripeness with good acidity and lower pH levels.

Food Pairing
