Description

Hand harvested from our estate this fruit was destemmed into a combination of neutral oak barrel fermentors and stainless steel tanks. The grapes were cold soaked before letting ferment start naturally and pressed as the wine approached dryness. Aged in French oak barrels for 10 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Bright cherries and a slight charred lemon note with aromatics of savoury herbs lifting out of the glass. A smooth and silky palate with a very delicate tannin structure.

Evidently serious wine here off the top, aged in a mix of barrels (a quarter each of new, 2nd, 3rd fill and older neutral wood), it shows a mix of dark berry fruit and plenty of smoke, spent coffee grounds, and some swarthy underlying black tea and vegetal character. The palate offers resistance and density, light but very tightly woven tannins; the finish bleeds into bitter chocolate tones, but all in all the ensemble flows seamlessly. Very fine length. Give it another year in bottle before enjoying, then drink 2021-2026. Tasted January 2020.
