Tasting Notes Download PDF

Latitude wines are crafted from grapes sourced from the ‘Golden Mile’; a strip of land covered with ancient sunstones and highly regarded for its outstanding grape-growing conditions. The resulting wines are aromatically lifted and riper in spectrum, a result of higher concentration of the stones in the area and the remarkable impact this has on the vines.

Aroma & Palate

This wine is a deep magenta colour with hints of purple. Complex aromas of plum compote, baking spices, vanilla and toasty oak continue to evolve in the glass. The palate is rich and concentrated with firm tannins, and the highlighted sweet fruit flavours are balanced by good acid structure.

Notes of blackberry and black cherry are followed by charry oak and subtle spice. The finish is persistent and generous, with hints of dark chocolate.

Food Matches

Serve this full-bodied wine with equally rich and robust flavours. Roast pheasant or a butterflied lamb leg cooked in pomegranate molasses will be stunning matches. Slow cooked game such as duck cassoulet or Provencal dishes such as ratatouille with black olives will also work well. Ripe Brie de Mieux and gorgonzola will be fantastic pairings too.

WINEMAKING DETAILS

The fruit was machine harvested from our premium Stoneleigh vineyards, during the month of March. It was brought to the winery immediately and crushed into small, open-top fermenters with temperature control. After ambient soak the ferment started with no added yeast. The cap management was decided after daily tasting, and plunging, rummaging or pumpover took place twice per day. The wine was macerated on skins for up to 23 days before pressing. Drained wine and pressings were combined and the wine went to oak. After malolactic the wine matured for 8 months in barrel and tank, before blending, stabilising and filtering to bottle.
