Cathedral Cellar Triptych 2020
After two days of cold maceration, which enhances colour and fruit flavours, the juice was inoculated with a combination of specially selected yeast
strains. Alcoholic fermentation lasted approximately seven days. During this time, each tank was subjected to a careful and meticulous pump-over
schedule. Only after numerous tastings by the winemaking team to ensure the achievement of perfect balance and structure, was the wine pressed off the skins. The wine was racked to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. It was then racked from the lees and returned to the barrel for further maturation. After 18 months in barrel, only the best wine was selected to make up this vintage Cathedral Cellar Triptych.
This layered and sophisticated red blend exudes aromas of plum, cherries, white pepper, red fruit and cedary oak. The palate reveals velvety tannin textures with a well-rounded, persistent finish.
The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 18 months. A 35% portion was aged in new wood, and the rest in second and third-fill barrels.
Enjoy this wine on its own or as an accompaniment to meat casseroles, game
dishes and any other flavoursome red meat dishes.
