Description

Varieties 64% Syrah 29% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Petit Verdot

Vineyards

Anwilka had a cold and wet winter allowing for a favourable resting period for the vines. The growing season was long and mild and cooler than expected.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked in small crates. Sorting occurred before and after destemming. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tronconic tanks. Lengthy pump-overs and extended maceration ensured a gentle extraction of ripe polyphenols. The wine spent a total of 14 months in wood, 50% new French Oak 400 litre barrels, and the remaining 50% in 2nd fill.
