MV6, Oberlin, Abel and 777 clones from the estate Mappinga Vineyard, each vinified separately but in the same fashion: chilled for 36 hours, wild-fermented with 30% whole bunches, 30% whole berries, the balance destemmed, matured in French oak (15% new) for 10 months. Light colour; scented forest floor and berries, the palate fresh and juicy.
10 Months French Oak Barriques
Aroma: Displaying complex aromas of raspberry, sour cherry and hints of forest floor.
Palate: The palate is seamless and elegant. Red fruits with enticing gamey characters swirl within layers of mushroom and notes of fresh herbs. The French oak adds ample but delicate tannins delivering a generous delightful length.
