Union

Bold aromas of blackberry, enhanced by savoury notes and spices; cloves, anise, vanilla. The rich and round palate is fruit forward emphasizing blueberry, raspberry, cassis, and fig with notes of licorice & mocha backed by a full mid-palate lead to structured yet approachable tannins, creating a slightly silky texture. A lingering finish of burst dark fruits.

Enjoy now through 2027 under ideal cellaring conditions.

Merlot (68%), Cabernet Franc (30%), and Malbec (2%).

Dense purple in colour; cedary, lightly toasty, black fruit and blackcurrant aromas on the nose with oak spice; full-bodied, dry, juicy and richly extracted blackberry, plum and blackcurrant flavours with well-integrated oak.  Well-structured with soft tannins, lovely mouth-feel with a finish of dark chocolate and coffee bean.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Production Notes
Hand harvested, de-stemmed and minimally crushed into one-tonne fermenters to encourage a high percentage of whole berries. After a few days cold soak, the musts are gradually warmed up to initiate a natural or directed fermentation. Hand plunging is used to keep the cap moist and to ensure colour and tannin extraction. The total maceration time is approximately 3 weeks. The wines are drained and pressed off just before dryness, and tank settled prior to going to barrel.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 Union undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation and matures in French Oak barrels (24% new) for 16 months.
