  • Other Information:Sourced from the Noa Vineyard, where the winery is located, this single site wine has an aromatic nose, with cassis layered over fresh dark red fruit and floral notes. On the palate, an intense core of fragrant red cherry and dark plum is underpinned by finely structured tannins, wood smoke notes and hints of spice. Delicate and feminine, but with a framework to age well. Vintage: The 2014 growing season saw minimal frosts in early spring and perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set. The season continued to be warm and settled until after the new year solstice when temperatures started to cool. This long stable weather pattern allowed for a longer than usual ripening period until the fruit reached optimal ripeness for harvest. Winemaking: All the fruit for this wine were hand-picked, destemmed and cooled. After a prefermentation cold soak, the juice was warmed slightly to begin fermenting with wild yeast. The caps of each tank were hand-plunged twice a day during fermentation. The wine was left on skins for 2 weeks of post-ferment maceration, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to French oak barriques, of which 17% were new. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during 18 months maturation in barrel, before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.
