How to say it

Valdeevee-esoh Single Vineyard Murlow

Product guide note

This wine is labelled ‘Single Vineyard’ because the grapes were grown in a special vineyard with excellent conditions for growing Merlot. The result is a dark and intense red wine with aromas of sweet Christmas cake spices, dark cherries and hints of prunes. It is full bodied with a long spicy vanilla finish.

Production note

After careful hand selection, the bunches were gently de-stemmed. They were cold macerated for 48 hours before being inoculated with yeast. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and lasted between 7 to 10 days. During fermentation the must was pumped over the skin cap three times a day. There was post-fermentation maceration on for skins 5 days before pressing. The wine was aged for 18 months in French (100%) oak barrels of which 35% were new barrels.
