Vinification: Brutus Red is a big wine, made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are grown in our two best vineyards with very low yields, hand picked, de stemmed and left to macerate for 3-4 weeks. The fermented wine is decanted into 225 litre barrels, where biological deacidification is completed, giving the wine a certain softness and elegance. Brutus Red stays in French oak barrels for minimum 24 months. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
