Tasting Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES 

Light red in colour. Fresh aromas lifted raspberry combine with hints of blue fruits, cherries, violets and rose petal. Light to medium bodied palate shows vibrant red fruits, silky texture and light spice. Tannins are soft and supple supported by well balanced acidity and an elegant finish.

VINEYARD
All fruit was sourced from our Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million-years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield. 

VINTAGE
Spring rainfall and cooler conditions of 2017 were ideal for flowering and fruit set. Warm gentle summer with no extreme heat days meant a slower ripening season with harvest a month later than 2016. Vintage spanned from 1st March to 4th April. 

WINEMAKING
Two hand picked parcels gently destemmed. First batch fermented in small open top fermenters, second in stainless steel lined concrete tank. 10 days and 15 days on skins, with hand plunging and pump overs once to twice daily before pressing. Ten months maturation in seasoned French oak barriques prior to filtration and bottling.
