Intensely fruit-driven, complex, vibrant & generous
A close to perfect growing season with a warm and dry spring providing excellent conditions for flowering. One of our hottest Decembers on record, advancing fruit development. A slightly milder January was perfect for steady ripening and led to an early red harvest with fruit in exceptional condition with intense colour, concentration and silky, fine, soft tannins.
Fruit was harvested and fermented separately in a combination of open, static and concrete vessels, with daily pump overs. Care was taken to ensure structure was achieved but not too much weight, a challenge in such a powerful season. Following fermentation, wines were pressed to oak for 14 months prior to blending and softening in concrete tanks then bottling in October 2021.
