Winemakers Note

A new approach to production has seen this wine tucked away in 2800l foudre for 22 months. A timeless method for this variety that allows it to progress slowly without gathering layers of oak. A spice laden wine, juniper and black tea, cherry, a quite tight palate that has layers on fine tannin and persistent acid. Quite reserved at this stage. Built to cellar for 10-15 years as an estimate.

 

Processed as whole berries, so no pumps used, a natural ferment that wasn't messed around with too much and then left on-skins for six months. matured in a Francois Foudrer 2800l barrel.
