Idiom Rosso di Stellenbosch
A lively, medium-bodied red wine with notes of red cherries and perfumed prosciutto. Delicate oaking in used barrels contributes to both fruity and savoury notes continuing on the palate. Delicious drinking wine with good acidity and plenty of potential. A perfect match for antipasto or Italian style meat and pasta dishes.

The grapes went into cold storage overnight before being de-stemmed and crushed straight into the press. The free run and first press juice was kept separate from the heavy pressed juice. After 2 days of settling at between 11-14 degrees Celsius, the juice was racked of its lees and inoculated with a carefully selected cultivated yeast. Fermentation took place at 18 degrees Celsius for 2 weeks. The wine was thereafter, lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
