2 years new barrel maturation, 4 years bottle maturation. No crushing of berries, no yeast but that from their skins, no fining- additives and no filters. Wine made by itself, kept for two years in the best new French-oak barrels, fit for this wonder. It is a piece of our history, our passion, labour and luck we were selling. It is our finest expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, and the best we can do. Will age for another 15-20 years.
It was our desire to produce a Bordeaux Blend and so we planted the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites and took 9 years to reach maturity. The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts and left for 5 weeks on their skins. The wine was then barrel aged for two years followed by four years of bottle maturation.
This Shiraz is made from fully ripe grapes for a complex wine with prominent spice and berry flavours. A full-bodied dark red wine with lovely dried fruit flavours and spiciness, soft tannins make it easy-drinking.A Lovely smoked coffee flavours from barrel contact.
This Merlot shows a lovely interplay of fruit flavours with hints of chocolate and black currant pastille,
rounded off by soft oak. With loads of ripe berry fruit, this is the ideal wine to serve with flavourful

enjoyed on its own in winter or slightly chilled during summer evenings and
will go well with charcuterie, breads and hard cheeses, meat stews or
