Oak

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.

Colour

Deep ruby red.

Nose

The nose is lifted and expressive, displaying mellow red fruits, a dusty herbal perfume and notes of mocha oak.

Palate

The palate is likewise open and medium bodied with blackcurrant, olive and mulberry flavours matched by subtle notes of tobacco. The wine is generous in the mid palate before soft tannins and bright acidity carry the wine to a lingering finish.

Background

The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils is 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. 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. 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 was 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.
