Kwv Cathedral Cellar Triptych 750ml
WINEMAKING: After two days of cold maceration, which enhances colour and fruit flavours, the juice was inoculated with a combination of specially selected yeast strains. Alcoholic fermentation lasted approximately seven days. During this time, each tank was subjected to a careful and meticulous pump-over schedule. Only after numerous tastings by the winemaking team to ensure the achievement of perfect balance and structure, was the wine pressed off the skins. The wine was racked to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. It was then racked from the lees and returned to barrel for further maturation. After 18 months in barrel, only the best wine was selected to make up this vintage Cathedral Cellar Triptych.
WINE DESCRIPTION: This layered and sophisticated red blend exudes aromas of blueberries, crushed herbs and tobacco leaf with hints of dark chocolate and cedary oak. The palate reveals velvety tannins and a savoury palate with a well-rounded, persistent finish.
