The Exclusive Blend is the flagship of Peter Falke Wines Boutique winery. The blend is comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot.

about the harvest: Only berries of premium quality were hand-picked in the vineyard, leaving all sunburnt berries on the vine.

in the cellar : 

Once de-stemmed, the berries underwent a second hand sorting selection process. No crushing of the berries took place and was inoculated with yeast to start the alcoholic fermentation process. Once completed, cold soaking took place for one day at 15°C. 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. Twenty percent went into 1st fill French oak and the rest into 2nd and 3rd fill. The wine was bottled November 2014.

Maturation: French oak barrels – 18 months
