Description

Aroma: Sweet plum, sage and thyme. There is a note of dark chocolate with the typical characters of red fruits being less dominant in this vintage.

Palate: Very youthful and tightly bound at bottling, a gentle front palate flows through to firm, drying tannins. Subdued fruit at this stage that will emerge in time.

Winemaking

Handpicked in the cool of morning, the grapes naturally fermented and were hand plunged in open vats over several weeks. A portion of the bunches were left as whole bunches. After draining to barrels for 15 months, barrels were selected and blended for further ageing, then blended before bottling 18 months after harvest.

The youthful restraint evident at bottling bodes well for a wine destined for cellaring, and we expect this wine to at its best from 2018 through 2025.
