Idiom 900 Series Nebbiolo 2016
A rich and noble red. This expression of Nebbiolo, from low yielding Stellenbosch vineyards, has a dark garnet colour, a ripe bouquet of red fruits and roses. Almond and plum flavours intermingle on the palate with hints of truffle and mushroom. The silky structured tannins indicate a wine that will reward cellaring.

Grapes are hand harvested into a fermentation bin. The grapes then spend 2days on cold maceration before being inoculated with the optimal yeast culture. Fermentation takes place in open top 500L French oak barrels for anything from 7-11days at temperatures of between 26-32°C. The grapes are then pressed with a small 50kg hand press before finishing MLF fermentation in 300L French oak barrels. The wine then matures in 300L French oak barrels for 24 months, before being lightly filtered and hand bottled.
