Harvested in the cool of the night and destemmed in the vineyard. Natural whole berry fermentation slows the initial fermentation to build delicate structure and fragrance. Halfway through the fermentation, we chilled the wine down to slow the fermentation activity of the natural yeasts and then inoculated with a specific strain destined to build fine structure at the end of fermentation. We used small open top fermenters and hand plunged daily to allow for colour and tannin extraction. Free run juice pressings were combined and transferred to four French oak hogsheads (50% new Troncais) of which 2 made it through the final tasting trials after 24 months in oak. Just 767 Bottles produced. Tasting NotesColour – Deep ruby and dark purple core with some youthful red rimsAroma – Vibrant red and dark fruits, showing plenty of youthful characters for a 2016 wine. Earth and savoury notes, some bramble, and mushroom, strawberry, cherry compote give a nice lift. Some game and leather notes starting to develop. Oak is present but not dominating and in balance. There is richness and intensity of mocha and dark chocolate.Palate – Fig, maraschino cherry, plum, sorbet, juniper, dark choc, tarragon, earth, mushroom, raspberry. A youthful fruit dominated palate with great depth and balance, just beginning to hit a very long drinking window.
