Paying homage to the previous life of Captain Stentiford’s beloved ship the ‘Laira’, August Tide Dry Red wine is inspired by the classic dominant blends originating from the Left Bank in Bordeaux, France which offer a complex and powerful wine displaying pure cassis. 


Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Garnet red. Rich perfumed fruits dominate the nose displaying pure cassis, mulberry and plum over subtle mocha oak from barrel fermentation and maturation. The rich and rounded palate displays juicy dark fruits with integrated dusty cedar oak notes. The wine has a strong but fine tannin structure and a long finish with lingering fruit flavours.
Production
The various wine components that make up this wine were all fermented separately. Fermented on skins for 7 days with pumping and rolling twice a day to ensure optimum extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. The wine was aged in new and used French and American oak barrels. The blend is inspired by the classic Cabernet dominant blends emanating from the left bank of Bordeaux.
