Vineyard

 

The fruit for this wine came from the Tullymore vineyard to the east of the town of Clare itself. The vines were planted on red clay loam over limestone soils at 450 meters above sea level. Distinct differences on the east end from the west help with the layering of flavours we see in this wine.

 

Winemaking

 

Parcels of the vineyard received a pre-fermentation maceration, or cold soak, concentrating the ripe berry fruit characters, prior to fermentation in closed – top fermenters. Others were fermented at different temperatures or were run off for more concentration. Regular        pump-overs maximised colour, flavour and tannin extraction from the skins. The grapes were pressed off to a selection of new and second use French and American oak hogsheads to undergo malolactic fermentation and barrel maturation. Rigorous barrel selection prior to blending ensured that only the highest quality components make it through to the finished wine.

 

Winemakers tasting notes

 

Deep purples in the glass with aromas of blackberry, white pepper and dark chocolate. This rich palate is full of ripe plum and cassis fruit with hints of liquorice and earthy, exotic spices. Vanillin and cedary oak is evident but well integrated and the finish is lingering.
