An alluring mixture of dark berry fruits, lifted florals and spice with underlying savoury notes. The palate is elegant and silken with wild, dark berry flavours and gentle dried herb notes. Medium bodied, the palate is structured and graceful with plush fruit and exceptional fruit and tannin integration which lingers in the mouth.
From the moment the picking crews were booked, I knew we had the makings for a smart wine from 2013. The growing season had been dry, warm and long, without excessive heat, making for ideal conditions for elegant flavour development whilst retaining natural acidity. Once harvested, the parcels of wine were gently handled and really left to themselves to express each vineyard site as clearly and as naturally as possible. 10 months of oak aging afforded the wine time to soften and integrate prior to blending and bottling. I hope you enjoy this wine as much as I do.
