Case: 12 bottles

A highly expressive and fragrant nose with violet, lavender, bay leaf and fennel seed weaving through a dense core of blackcurrant and red cherry. Subtle anise, cumin, cedar, cracked coffee bean and cocoa lie in the background. The palate has purity and elegance; delicate layers of cherries, blackcurrants and Satsuma plums combine with a vibrant thread of natural acidity, giving direction and focus. Cinnamon and clove are present on the mid-palate which extends long with tightly coiled powdery tannins.

  • After individual berry sorting and cold soaking, fermentation took place in closed, static fermenters at temperatures up to 30C with extraction by pumping over each individual lot three times daily. After malolactic fermentation entirely in barrels and 9 months of barrel maturation, separate parcels are blended for further maturation in French Bordelaise coopered barriques with seasonal rackings.
