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 inviting and ripely fruited with red-berried fruits, plums, sweet spice with a hint of savoury oak.

Palate

The palate is medium bodied and approachable with a dark berry and cassis flavours framed by soft tannins.

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.
