Tasting Notes
The Amani I am 1 has a beautiful deep ripe cherry colouring. The wine shows a clear fruit driven nose. Showing loads of black fruit, graphite and an inviting toast impression fused with fresh lime and sweet liquorice expression. A good fusion of mineral saltiness and the sweet appeal of a warm climate. A smooth palate entrance, showing a delicate tannin structure. The mid palate has sweet ripe black fruit, balanced with a fresh acidity and a prominent but not dominating oak influence. The wine has a delicate palate weight with good fruit to support the overall blend.

Malolactic fermentation is initiated in barrel with 3 rackings during the year of aging.Maturation: This wine matured for 12 months in French oak barrels of which 13% was new oak. The final blend is a composition of selected barrel in the cellar.
