Mont Destin 11 BARRELS 2012
A red blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsaut and Mourvedre, and in perfect harmony! An infusion of cherries and strawberries on the nose with raspberry, cranberry and dark nut chocolate with hints of spice.
The grapes for this delicious blend, were handpicked and transported to the cellar in small lug boxes. On arrival at the winery, the bunches underwent sorting on a vibrating table, followed by de-stemming, then further hand-sorting to remove any remaining stems. This attention to detail ensured that only the highest quality berries were lightly crushed into a satellite tank which was hoisted and opened above a stainless steel fermentation tank. Inoculation with a French yeast was made, after a three day cold soak. Fermentation was slow and gentle.
