The palate is silky smooth with a fresh stone fruit & vanilla mid palate. The balanced acidity is refreshing with a complex finish.
Despite challenging weather conditions and the possibility of smoke taint, which we were fortunate to avoid. Settled weather throughout March allowed vintage to deliver consistently high quality, low tonnage fruit
Whole bunch pressed to retain delicacy and freshness, then settled in tank to clarify. The juice was transferred to French oak barriques (20% of which were new) for ferment and maturation, with around half the barrels completing malolactic fermentation soften the high natural acidity. Prepared for bottling in late January, 2021.
