A blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes for this wine were harvested and vinified separately, with each varietal being cold soaked with the skins for two days to increase extraction of flavour and colour. The juice was warmed to start fermentation with carefully selected yeast strains. The wine was gently pressed and malolactic fermentation was completed in tank, followed by oak aging for approximately 6 months prior to blending, where Cabernet Franc was chosen to play the more predominate role.
