Winemaking
The fruit was picked in mid february 2014, following an extremely dry growing season. After crushing the juice was given 8 hours skin contact then pressed and cold settled.  The wine remained in stainless, and underwent cool fermentation using aromatic yeast, and bottled early under screw cap to capture the full fruit flavour.
Tasting Notes
It's the merlot that makes this sooo magic! Shiraz has given it fabulous strawberries on the nose and palate, but the really wonderful part is the cranberry lick which just makes you go back for more! A rose' on the drier end of the spectrum, this is exceedingly French without being snooty... so refreshingly berry without being sweet, so tantalisingly moreish... First you see the strawberries, and then you get the cranberries and then there is a spice... hmm... what is it... the tiniest hint of aniseed? Or is it cloves?
Food Matches
Such a sensational little wine can happily be consumed on its own, but it would also be spectacular with fresh prawns or salmon, fried haloumi, or with chicken sausages and a garlicky mash... sorry, I'm off to cook....
