TASTING NOTES:

The nose is inviting and ripely fruited, all bright red-berried fruit, plums and sweet spice with a hint of savoury oak. The palate medium bodied and approachable with a dark berry and cassis flavours framed by soft tannins. 

This wine is organic and suitable for Vegans.

WINE REGION:


Vineyards: The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils are perfectly suited to Organic Viticulture. The well-established vines (up to thirty years of age) are planted widely apart for airflow to minimise disease pressure and minimal drip irrigation ensures low yielding fruit with rich flavours and varietal expressiveness

Winemaking: Fully de-stemmed before fermentation in a mix of open and closed tanks. The wine was primarily vinified without the influence of oak for maximum fruit expression before blending with a component aged in three and four-year-old French oak.

Vintage 2017: 2017 saw a return to vintage conditions not commonly seen for over two decades. A very wet winter followed by a cool summer with few spikes of heat meant that vintage as up to a month later than what has been common recently. A dry and consistently moderate autumn ensured the fruit was able to ripen slowly in ideal conditions. This “throwback” vintage will become famed for the quality and elegance
of the fruit.

FOOD PAIRING:

Braised short ribs.
