TASTING NOTE

Deep garnet in colour, with blue reflections. There are aromas of lavender, blueberry, blackcurrant, and tobacco leaf on the nose, which follow on the soft palate with raspberry coulis, damson plum, baked rhubarb, blackcurrant, turned earth, and sumac spice. Plush sweet-savoury fruit, silky tannins, and persistent length.

WINEMAKING

100% destemmed to ferment whole berries, essential for retention of freshness and brightness. It underwent a wild ferment over 14 days in open top fermenter, encouraging yeasts indigenous to the vineyard. Gently pumped over once daily, the juice was returned to the top of the cap for gentle tannin extraction. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was pressed and matured in old oak hogsheads for 6-months.
