Tasting Notes

16yo vines, hand-picked, bunch-sorted, the varieties open-fermented together with 90% whole berries/10% whole bunches, 14 days on skins, matured for 11 months in French puncheons (25% new). The perfumed red fruit bouquet is enticing, but it's the palate that makes the wine, with flavours of black cherry and texture woven together from start to finish, the aftertaste lingering for minutes.
