Alma Crimson is our take on a Bordeaux-Style blend incorporating the varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
The grapes were selectively picked in late September and early October. The grapes for this wine came from several vineyards that were picked and fermented separately. During fermentation, the grape cap was pumped over several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction. The wine was pressed out just before completing fermentation, and the was separated and used to make this wine. Malolactic fermentation was encouraged and when completed the wine was racked into French oak barrels for 12 months. Once the aging was complete, each parcel was individually tasted and the final blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc was made.

This wine goes particularly well with grilled meats, steak, hamburgers and roast chicken.
Alma is a dark full-bodied lively wine showing generous aromas of cherries, plums and sweet dark fruits with a buttery palate offering essences of vanilla, cloves and green tea.
