Bright and flinty oyster shell nose with grapefruits, pears and lemongrass. A hint of vanilla oak brings a sweet perfume.
Finesse combined with pillowy fruit weight, this is a wine that is fine boned with citrus flavours dominating in its youth. A citrus energy drives the palate with a pithy interest and texture on the back palate. An extremely fine-grained oak tannin framework lingers on the finish.
Hand-harvested grapes placed in a blast chiller overnight before whole bunch pressing gave very high quality juice. 24 hours’ settling before transfer to French oak barrels: some 228L barriques and some 500L puncheons, with 30% new oak. Both wild yeasts and cultured yeast were allowed to carry out the fermentation, offering complexity and a hint of struck match. Natural acidity was retained by inhibiting malolactic fermentation. Maturation for 10 months in the cool underground cellar before blending and bottling.
Will reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years.
