2012 Fireside Red

Medium red in colour with red berry fruit, toasted oak and vanilla aromas. Midweight on the palate with dark fruit flavours and soft tannins.


Grapes underwent a short cold soak, and were fermented in stainless steel with a temperature-controlled maceration. Gently pressed, with malo-lactic fermentation completed in barrel. Each of the varieties were vinified separately and then combined after they were aged for eight months in barrel.
