The grapes for this wine are grown on sandy loam soils. Fermentation is at 29C for 7 days to extract the fruit flavours, phenolics and tannins. There is then a short post fermentation maceration. Malolactic fermentation is also encouraged. Before bottling, the wine is clarified with albumen treatment and then cold stabilisation. The wine is then aged in the bottle for 3 months prior to release.
Serve on its own or with pasta, meats or pizza. Also great with sausages, pork chops, guinea fowl and minced beef.
