Winemaking

Coleraine '18

Each parcel of grapes was destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to predominately new French oak barrels for 17 months’ maturation. Throughout this time, they were regularly topped and racked. The separate wines were blended in January 2019. The finished wine was bottled in December 2019. The final blend is 52% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot and 15% cabernet franc.
