2018 Konpira Maru Icarus



A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Handpicked (Quarry Ridge) on the 19th of April. Destemmed (not crushed). Soaked for 7 days then wild fermented for 18 days before 5 days post-ferment maceration. Plunged by peage once a day from 7 baume onwards, delayed to encourage carbonic maceration. Incredibly aromatic, with notes of bright red cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant and olive brine. Soft and supple palate with consistent tannin structure and flavours of red plum and blackberry with a deep blue hue.
