TASTING NOTE

Bright cerise in colour, with blue reflections. Lifted blood plum, cherry, dark chocolate aromas follow onto the palate with raspberry cane, vanilla, bakery spices, and dried bay leaf. Silky, savoury, dry fruit tannins that recall pomegranate, cacao, and leather. Complex, harmonious, and lush.

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.
