Vinified using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts, and 11 months in French oak – 15 % new – before racking and settling in tank for a further 4 months. Fermentation was carried out using de-stemmed fruit including the addition of 25% whole bunches.
Perfumed with lovely aromatics, there is a range of complexed fruit notes of darker berryfruit, some spice, savoury tones and dried herbs.
The 2014 has a silky and lush texture, concentrated fruit power yet finely balanced with fine tannins throughout and long in flavour.
No filtration or fining, deposits may form.
Organically grown and made.
