The Wine:
Hand-picked fruit taken directly to winery was crushed to open fermenters. A long, cold soak was preceded by natural fermentation. All blocks remained separate and were hand plunged throughout a moderate fermentation. Pressed when dry, wines are allowed to settle for around 4 weeks in tank prior to barrelling down to all French Oak. Around 12 months in Oak prior to blending and subsequent bottling in September 2023.

Bright and fresh with an undeniable, macerated raspberry and fresh blueberry overtone. There is purity and integrity with plenty of fruit flavour and soft tannins. Juicy, cherry flavours and bright acidity make this wine a delicious drink with a medium frame and terrific length and balance.
