Baco Noir - *LAST FEW / Unlike any other
Totally dry a Baco unlike others. Alluring nose of candied cherry, red licorice, cinnamon and raisins. On the palate soft tannins, a very smooth palate. From a cooler vintage, the medium acidity is juicy and carries the flavour through to the finish.
Hand harvested from our estate vineyard at the start of September. Fermented naturally including as small portion using carbonic maceration. Aged in 15% new Canadian oak, 30% 3rd fill American oak and 55% neutral barrels for 10 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur.
