Tasting Notes:

An herbal pot-pourri of oregano, thyme and bay leaf announces the nose leads to toasted almond and buttered toast, laced with red fruits on the palate. The wine shows a muscular structure and is composed of balanced acidity and lively, layered tannins. It ends robust and earthy which indicates that it has great longevity.

If one had to find a single word that best describes our overall philosophy it would be balance. We realise that we are very fortunate with our terroir and need to work in balance with nature as it is central to who, what, and where we are. Balance in the vineyard is essential to capture the best nature has to offer and equally we strive to make wines with great balance, complexity and elegance.

Our terroir provides a unique combination of geography, climate and soil types. They conspire with carefully selected varietals and clones to produce superb quality grapes.

The bunches and berries are sorted by hand before being gently crushed and destemmed. After 3 days of cold soaking the fermenting must is then pumped over three times a day.

The wine spends 19 months in 50% new French oak barrels.

Food pairing
