PALATE

Elegant with power. Silky tannins & excellent length. A special wine with cellaring potential of 15-20+ years.

VINTAGE

A perfect late Spring and early Summer resulted in the best flowering and fruit set we have seen for many years. It was followed by a dry and mild ripening period. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptionally balanced wines.

WINEMAKING

Hand picked. Wild yeast fermentation. 10% whole bunch. Use of concrete fermenters. The wine spent 12 months in French Oak of which 20% was new.
