The grapes were gently de-stemmed, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a week long cold soak, each parcel was fermented separately, with a combination of wild and cultured yeast. The batches were hand plunged to extract the vibrant colour, flavour and delicate tannin structure. Parcel’s were pressed separately to a mix of new and used French oak barrels or remained in tank. In the spring after completing malolactic fermentation, each parcel and tank was tasted and blended.

Supple and expressive, with clove-scented red berry flavors, black tea and dried thyme notes that have plenty of focus and drive on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2025.
