As the grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted, a process of minimal intervention followed, as all components were barrel matured for 18 months in 225 litre barriques. Gentle handling and absolute attention ensured the wine was kept as natural as possible with frequent punch downs and skin contact of 30 days. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc makeup more than 85% of the blend with Malbec and Petit Verdot adding the “salt & pepper’’ excitement.
Glen Carlou Petite Classique
An absolutely stunning wine, with complete balance and sophisticated elegance. Hints of bell pepper mingle with chocolate and sweet berry nuances. Vibrant red fruit combined with plum and vanilla undertones and hints of tobacco leaf, all come together in this polished example of a rarely encountered full complement of Bordeaux varieties blended red. The palate is brimming with dark fruit and peppermint chocolate, with soft tannins and a velvety finish.
