All grapes hand sorted with a policy of “if in doubt chuck it out!” in order to refine the careful bunch selection done in the vineyard. Mostly whole berry cold soak for gentle extraction with a portion of ripe stalks returned to the must.
A warm dry winter followed by sporadic spring and summer rainfall, kept temperatures cool and vines developing well. Warm conditions at harvest and new fruit from younger blocks has brought some exciting darker fruit forward notes to our typically classic style. Black cherry combines with cedar wood smoke and the characteristic savoury complexity of this site with eastern spice and wild herb, showing intrigue beyond its youthfulness. A broad textured palate shows supple tannin a finessed fruit acid balance, finishing with silky length.
Personal Food pairing:
Medium meat dishes of venison and pork with this wine really coming into its own, complimenting duck pheasant and even seared tuna. I have consumed many bottles of this wine,mainly with Duck and differing sauces and not once were we let down.
