Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (50%)

VINIFICATION
The vines are dry cultivated and carefully hand picked in early September, usually at dawn and dusk to ensure that the grapes are cool on arrival at the winery.
The vines are checked so that only up to 8 grapes can be produced.
The grapes are carefully handpicked, harvested at the beginning of September, then destemmed and fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks until the first fermentation is complete. The wine then matures in 30% new oak barrels for 12 months.

RECOMMENDED FOOD
Goes well with lamb from the oven and aged hard cheese.
AWARDS & REVIEWS

TASTING NOTES
The Aurora Chateau is a happy marriage of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is the first wine ever made on the winery, which means that these vines are the oldest as they date back to 2003.
This wine recognizes black fruits and ripe red fruits along with some scents of mocha. With a medium to full mouthfeel and notes of mint and green in the finish.
