Chateau Heritage Family Reserve 2008
Elements: Château Heritage, Family Reserve 2008 is a combination of Cabernet- Sauvignon and Syrah.
Harvest: Totally manual harvest with only the exceptional years and optimal quality grapes used.
Life Cycle: upon arrival to the winery yard, grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation developed with time. This wine stayed in contact with grapes’s skin for a period of two weeks. Maturation took place in stainless steel tanks. This particular wine is then aged in New Oak Barrels for a period of 12- months before being bottled and preserved for a certain period for proper evolution.
Bottling: When the wine was deemed ready, it was bottled at the château. High Quality Natural Corks was used in the 44mm format on 750ml bottles.
Alcoholic strength: 14% ; Total Acidity: 3.6g/l H2SO4 ; Residual Sugar: 1.2g/l
Tasting Notes: Rich, deep ruby remaining purple at rim. Intense, penetrating and very spicy bouquet, unashamedly expressive. Dense, fleshy and intense on the palate; remarkably youthful but with obvious development and depth. Layers of sumptuous flavors, revealing hints of liquorice, cinnamon and dried fruit. Full bodied yet subtly caressing the palate where it lingers seductively.
