Product Description:

"Three Cabernet and two Merlot components from our Carbunup River, Summus (Wilyabrup)and Cellar Door (Yallingup) vineyards were destemmed and crushed to separate static tanks and inoculated immediately with a Bordeaux yeast strain. Each tank was pumped over twice daily using a Turbopigeur - a red fermentation pump designed in France that floods the cap with a very gentle pumping action. The wines were fermented on skins to dryness at a maximum of 28°C and pressed after 14 days. The wine was racked to barrel for MLF and was then matured for 10 months in 10% new French oak barriques. It is a pure expression of Margaret River Cabernet Merlot with fresh varietal character and elegant structure." -Importer
