First Glance: Lifted, Juicy, Vibrant, Bright

The Wine:
Each grape variety was handled separately until final blending to allow each variety to best exhibit its unique characteristics. Destemmed and selectively sorted. 50% whole berries. Open fermenters. Approximately 14-18 days on skins with a very gentle maceration. Wild yeast ferment. Matured in older French oak for 7 months. Bottled December 2021.

A progressive take on a French classic, Noir brings Grenache together with its lesser-known red partners, Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise, in a celebration of the southern Rhône on our estate. Lifted fragrance, with bright flavours and vibrant acidity, this wine shows these ancient newcomers also thrive in this elevated corner of McLaren Vale.
