Redcurrant, blue and black berries, bay leaf, cedar
Medium-bodied, vibrant, generous, fine tannins
A near-perfect growing season, with beautifully warm spring weather providing the ideal environment for flowering and fruit set. One of the hottest Decembers on record was followed by milder conditions, ensuring steady fruit development and ripening. Our reds were harvested in March with intense colour, concentrated flavours and silky, fine tannins.
Fruit was de-stemmed but not crushed preserving whole berries, then fermented in a combination of open, static and concrete vessels at below 27˚C with twice daily gentle hand plunging or pumpovers. Once pressed off skins, wines matured for 12 months in French oak with racking every three months to aid clarification then blended prior to bottling in April 2021.
