2007 Terroir Cache - Red Meritage

estate Series

Sold Out

All the fruit was handpicked, double sorted and de-stemmed. The components of the blend were fermented separately in small batches and 10% of the juice from every batch was drained from the skins to improve colour, structure and intensity of flavours. We used extended delestage - a traditional method of gently draining the wine and returining it to tank with its skins during fermentation. The wine spent 14 - 17 days on its skins before being drained by gravity to barrel. The wine was then aged for 18 months in new and older French Oak barrel and bottled without fining or filtration.

Winemaker's Comments

This wine has an opaque, dark ruby colour. The powerful nose is complex and shows aromas of blackcurrant, blueberries, mocha, roasted hazlenut and leather. A concentrated palate with tight structure and abundant tannins is blalnced with fresh acidity. The 2007 Terroir Cache has rich and intense flavours of ripe blackberries, blueberries and chocolate. This wine shows great balance and should age gracefully for the next 5 - 8 years.
