Description

The balance of dark fruit and wild cherries in this blend will mould this wine to an array of dishes. Mulberry and blueberry are embraced with notes of cedar, both dried herbs like coriander seeds and the smell of crushing fresh herbs in your hand, leaving faint hints of rosemary behind.

Winemaking Notes

Sorted by hand, each cultivar was vinified separately to enhance each varietals’ intrinsic quality before blending. The juice was inoculated with selected yeast strains. Alcoholic fermentation lasted about six days. Gentle pump-overs encouraged gentle flavour and colour extraction. Pressed and settled, the wine was transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation to encourage a smooth and delicious result.
Oak maturation: 18 months, 25% new French Oak
Production: 18 barrels

Growing Conditions

The Moody Lagoon Red Blend 2018 serves as an ode to the Bot River lagoon adjacent to the estate, showcasing the diversity found on the estate. Nicknamed “Moody” the lagoon is known to be unpredictable, changing in colour and flow direction throughout the day. Reflecting all seasons in one day, the lagoon is instrumental in moderating temperatures, joining forces with cool winds caressing the vines from the Atlantic Ocean.
Soil: Clay, quarts and shales
