Story

The life of the party, the instigator of frivolity, the undying entertainer. A modern-day jester gathers friends around regularly to eat and drink well, and much like their medieval predecessors, reminds us that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

Tasting Note

Aromas of ripe strawberry, blackberry and plum sit atop subtleties of roasted almonds, vanilla bean and a hint of tobacco. The palate is medium bodied with soft, cocoa powder tannins, fruits of red currant, red plum, blackberry and strawberry coulis. Notes of black olive and dried herbs arise and bring savoury elements to a long and graceful finish. 

Winemaking

Crushed and destemmed, fermented over 7 days in 8 tonne potter fermenters and larger vinomatics with twice daily pump overs carried out in both circumstances. Temperatures were kept cool, between 20 and 24˚C to retain fruit vibrancy and ensure a soft tannin structure. The ferment was pressed off at approx. 1 Baume to finish in stainless steel tank before being transferred to seasoned 75% French and 25% American Hogs Head Barrels for 13 months. Malolactic fermentation was completed by indigenous strains following which the wine was racked, sulphured and returned to oak to complete its maturation. No finings and only light filtration were used prior to bottling.
