Viticulture

Vines are of French origin, at average age of 13 years for Cabernet and 7 years for Syrah. The forming is double vertical shoot positioning (VSP or double guyot). Regulation of production is twofold - the first operation is always done when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. The second regulation is made when the bunches start to change color, in the veraison period. Leaf mass regulation is made on Syrah vines three times during the growing period.

Tasting notes

Brilliant ruby red color with light purple shades. The aroma is intense, fruity, with hints of cherry, blackberry, and blueberry, enhanced by jammy notes, chocolate, spices, and smoky oak. 42/25 Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and balanced fruity wine with a medium body and soft tannins. Slightly spicy and juicy in the mouth with a medium finish and jammy aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest for 42/25 Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon takes place in the early mornings, in the second half of October. The grapes are hand-picked and are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The fine selection of grapes is sent by gravity to stainless fermenters whose shape resemble an open wooden vat, specially designed by Midalidare. There, at controlled temperature, cold soak takes place in order to obtain maximum coloring substance and fruity flavor from the skin. Gentle warming preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation days at controlled temperature. A post maceration is carried out. Then the wine is drained from the fermenters and part of the blend is fed for ageing into second to third fill 225-litres French oak barrels (barrique). Malolactic fermentation takes place under controlled temperature. 42/25 Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon is partial aged for minimum 10 months. Rough filtration, blending and bottling complete the process.
