Affinity 2006

The wine has a beautiful dark, rich colour. An exceptionally complex wine with dark fruit and cloves on the nose. Full bodied, succulent and approachable. Tannins elegantly integrated.

Winemakers Notes

All varieties of the blend were picked at optimal ripeness. Each component was harvested separately.

The Harvest

The components of the blend were seperately vinified and then completed malolactic fermentation. Barrel selection for the blend only occured after the 24 month ageing process in French oak - 33% new wood.
