TASTING NOTE

A brooding garnet in colour. The nose is full of violets, rosemary, red plums, and a wet, gravelly, minerality that follow on the palate with black cherry, raspberry, chocolate-mocha, and pomegranate that is both unusual and beguiling. A juicy, soft mouthfeel, with a persistent spine, and dusty tannins that cries out for rich protein.

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.
