Hans' Winemaking Comments+

The grapes were given 4-5 days cold-soak before a natural wild yeast initiation of the ferment. The wine spent 18 days on skins before being pressed and transferred into French Allier barriques for Malolactic fermentation and further aging for 15 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

Original Tasting Notes+

This is an exceptional wine with outstanding depth and structure and a velvety rich dark cherry colour. The wine exhibits pretty layers of plum, and black cherry with subtle undertones of cedar. An elegant wine, with delicate fruit concentration held together with ripe tannins with an exceptionally long finish.
