Assemblage: A term used in winemaking to describe the artistic blending process. This wine is an example of just that. Three wines grown, fermented and aged separately before being carefully assembled to craft a wine of balance and character.
Colour is ruby to dark cherry red. Up-front aromas of blueberry, cedar, currants and baking spice. The wine is medium bodied and quite soft on the palate. Supple tannins and fresh acidity gives the wine its backbone, that is nice to drink alone but will pair quite nicely with food. On the palate there are notes of strawberry, figs and vanilla bean. Medium+ finish.
