Tasting Notes
Full bodied with flavours of black currant, black fruits, cloves and vanilla.
Awards
GOLD MEDAL – 2012 Pacific Rim Wine competition
Vineyard Notes
Three Boys is our Estate Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, where the eastwest orientation and famous sandy soil provide for maximum sun exposure and great drainage. Leaf thinning also allowed for maximum sun exposure and ventilation in the fruit zone. High fruit selection accounted for 3.5 tons per acre.
Production Notes
85% French Oak, 15% American Oak, 18 months aging
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by the stemmed whole berries and free run juice being transferred to fermenting tanks for a five day cold soak, twice daily pump over to extract color and flavour. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with veal, pork, lamb, beef and mature hard cheese.
