Tasting Notes

The nose of this intriguing wine reveals floral wild herb aromas with notes of red plum, smoked bacon and white pepper. The palate contributes further plum and herb characters, wrapped up with silky smooth tannins. This is a supple and highly approachable wine which is excellent with food.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The fruit was harvested, then destemmed and crushed directly into stainless steel fermenters for fermentation with Rhone isolate yeasts. After pressing and malolactic, the wine was transferred to a mixture of new and seasoned oak barriques for maturation. After 20 months maturation on light lees, the wine was blended, lightly egg white fined and filtered before bottling.
