Description

The result of a top secret side project between Paul our winemaker and Adam our viticulturist.
Limited Edition only 600 bottles have been produced.

Aroma: A mix of spices such as clove and nutmeg along with cherry, green apple and traces of nougat.

Palate: A sweet dessert style, the palate is immediately spicy with subtle notes of cherry, strawberry and rose showing the varietal definition. Think of a sweet watermelon on a hot day.

Winemaking Notes

Hand picked at the start of winter after a small noble rot infection, the raisined grapes were slowly pressed to ferment in a French oak foudre, then a small tank over nine months.

Growing Conditions

Vertical shoot positioning, shoot and bunch thinning to restrict yield.
