GRAPE VARIETIES: 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
CLIMATE: After a quite cool spring and a late start to the growing season, the months of July, August andSeptember saw a rather sustained period of drought, leading to small yields (40hl/ha) and small-berried grapes, naturally rich and concentrated.
HARVESTS: Both hand and machine picking were used and the entire harvest was sorted by hand. In 2010 the vintage started on 29 September with the young, early Merlots. The old-vine Merlot was harvested between 6 and 15 October while the Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on 19 and 20 October.
COLOUR: Very attractive intense crimson colour, deep purple at the rim.
NOSE: Ripe red fruit (cherry, blackcurrant, plum) with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and liquorice.
PALATE: With a soft initial attack, the palate is full bodied and delicious with concentrated tannins and a persistent, long fruity finish.
AGEING: This wine will benefit from ageing. It can be tasted as from 2013 but will benefit from a few extra years of cellaring under good storage conditions. Its ageing potential is about 10 years.
DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
