Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy now or cellar for 1-2 years
On the nose
Dark crimson red with a slight purple hue. Amazingly aromatic showing allspice, sweet red fruits, rhubarb and earthiness.
On the palate
The wine is elegant and refined with complex layered textures that dance across the palate adding depth and intrigue. The tannins are structured but fine adding a slight dustiness to the finish. The acidity gives freshness to the wine while the whole bunch component improves sweet fruits, earthiness and savouriness that are well integrated.
Product Notes
The fruit was handpicked (with bunch selection done in the vineyard) de-stemmed into an open bin and tipped into a 2.5t open fermenter (avoiding the use of pumping). Approx. 30% whole bunches added and then chilled for a cold soak for 4 days pre-ferment. Fermentation started naturally with hand plunging daily. The wine is then pressed off skins, then run directly to barrel to old 500lt puncheon barrels. The wine was then carefully racked and bottled without fining or filtration.
