The bouquet of this elegant red wine from the Peter Falke Signature collection reveals intense notes of cranberries, cherry, white pepper and hints of vanilla. The palate is full bodied with a delicate spiciness and silky tannins.
The signature range has style and finesse, created for the wine drinker who appreciates wines with personality.
Only hand-picked berries of premium quality made it into "Alani". Once de-stemmed, the berries underwent a second hand sorting selection process. No crushing of the berries took place. Fermentation was inoculated with yeast, once completed, cold soaking took place for one day at 15 degrees. The grapes were left on the skins for 21 days. Punch-downs and pump-overs occurred regularly ensuring a velvety smooth tannin structure. Finally the wine was lightly pressed and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels. 20 percent went into 1st fill French oak and the rest into second and third fill barrels.
Pair this with leaner red meats, stew and mildly spicy foods.
