96 Points - James Halliday "From six estate blocks, 50% on sand, 50% ironstone. Destemmed and mechanically sorted whole berries and 20% whole bunches open-fermented with a splash of viognier, 10 months in French oak (20% new). Dark fruits with earth, chocolate and licorice nuances. Sensational price.

Approximately 10% whole bunches were used with 50% of the fruit remaining as whole berries. Mechanically sorted before going into open-top fermenters. Cold soaked until the onset of wild-fermentation, utilising the yeasts that naturally come in with the grapes from the vineyard. A careful regime of plunging and rack and returns. The resulting wine was kept on lees in 25% new French oak, 75% older French oak for 12 months. No fining, just filtration.
