Notes

Sourced from our Brookby Hill Vineyard in the Southern Valleys, the grapes were hand harvested and partially de-stemmed before undergoing 50% wild fermentation. 30% whole bunch clusters were added to the ferment for an increased lift in aromatics and structure. The resulting wine was aged in 25% new and seasoned French oak barrels for 11 months. The wine was unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

Dark crimson in colour, the bouquet has lifted floral aromas of violets and wild thyme combined with red fruits and a savoury earthiness. The palate has crushed raspberries and bright red cherry flavours interlaced with forest floor, coffee bean and bramble nuances. Velvety tannins and firm structure will insure this wine ages gracefully.
