The Wine:
Naturally fermented after selective-harvesting, before the indigenous yeast kicked off. Gently pressed after 12 days on skins with twice daily hand-plunging or pump overs. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel, then matured for 12 months a French oak 4500L foudre.

Cherries and red plums on the nose, with some delightful floral notes. Primary red fruits on the palate, with hints of cardamom and nutmeg, augmented by fine, velvety tannins and bright acidity. The mouthfeel is smooth, with a plethora of layers, complexity and texture.
