Haskell The Expatriate 2009

Cabernet Sauvignon 51%, Shiraz 49% We harvested all the grapes together for fermentation in an open fermentation tank. Pump-over and punch downs were done 4 times a day with aeration on every second one. The mash was pressed after 15 days and malolactic was completed in stainless steel tank. This is a selection from 100% Francois Frere barrels. Tasting note: Ruby-red colour with purple rim. The nose shows flavours of black cherries, mulberries, chocolate powder and soft hints of liquorice. The palate has a soft entrance with lovely ripe fruit tannins in perfect harmony with the oak nuances. Drink in 2014 and beyond.
