the wine

A harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, picked on the same day and co-fermented to marry their flavours and aromas. Coming from our Adairs Lane Vineyard close to the winery, the grapes are fully de-stemmed and fermented in small open fermenters. Gently hand plunged and basket pressed into second use French oak barriques and hogsheads. Medium bodied in nature, this wine is a wonderful accompaniment to many styles of cuisine.
