Notes of redcurrant, tobacco, bay leaf, juniper, fresh earth and mulberry.
Fresh and lively through the entry with plenty of bright red fruits and energy. Tannins begin rounded and broad, then tighten through the finish providing a gentle savoury quality and considerable length. The acid profile is very bright and fresh. The palate is complimented with notes of redcurrants, mulberry, and juniper. Depth and layers are found in the form of bay leaf and dried herbs whilst the palate touches on notes of tobacco, earth and ash.
The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in open top vessels, with regular pump overs (three daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. Average time ‘on skins’ was 14 days. The batches were then drained and pressed to tank and then racked to barrel for oak maturation.
