Dalton Canaan Red
Red Canaan is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Sirah and a little Shiraz and some mourvedre, the proportions of which may vary from year to year.
Close proximity to the winery allowed for immediate crushing and fermenting. The colour of the wine is extracted by a rigorous regime of pumping over and warm fermentation. The Canaan wines are our earliest release wines and do not see influence of oak before bottling.
Canaan is an easy drinking medium-bodied red wine with sweet fruit, with notes of black pepper, cherries and plums, low tannins and soft vanilla tones. This is a wine with very few pretensions and is made for immediate consumption.
