Region:
Barossa, Eden Valley, Australia

Country of Origin:
Australia

Grape Varieties:
82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot

Vinification:
Arriving in small individual crates the grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending a total of 7 days on skins at 26°C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and the individual parcels were matured separately for three months before being racked, blended and undergoing a further 15 months in a mixture of French oak hogsheads. In order to retain maximum finesse and elegance the wine was bottled unfiltered.

Tasting Notes:
The ‘Three Graces’ is a classic Bordelais blend of three of the worlds most noble varieties. A classic lifted nose of blackcurrant cassis and cedar wood with hints of black olive, pepper, violets and tobacco. The palate is an integrated blend of flavours, svelte and seamless showing prominent blackcurrant fruit delicately interwoven with tobacco leaf, capsicum, black pepper and savoury French oak giving the wine an undeniable elegance and generous length.
