Cape Winemakers Guild

Flagstone Love Handles 2004

The grapes were hand picked on 25 March 2004 at 25.2-26.1 degrees balling. The grapes were then crushed, after which all small parts of the stems were removed by hand on a sorting table. Cold maceration on the skins took place for 10 days with one cold soak punch down per day. Fermentation took place in stainless steel open top fermenters with punch downs every four hours, at 25-30 degrees C. Pressing and barreling down took place without the use of pumps – only gravity flow. The wine was then matured for 24 months – two-thirds in new American oak barrels and the rest in older French and American oak. Tasting Note: The wine has a deep colour and a rich, complex nose that combines black fruit, licorice and cracked black pepper with hints of ethereal spice. Full and deep on the palate with a wonderfully integrated tannin structure and earthy undertones.
