Fresh wild flowers and lavender with subtle hints of bergamot, pink peppercorns, and menthol. Granite and cool ash envelope a core of dark fruit with roasted meat, cedar, and iodine leading to a long effusive finish.
Full-bodied yet elegant with beautiful well-integrated natural tannins.
The fruit was harvested and sorted by hand in mid-September with 100% of the fruit left as whole cluster. Feral primary and secondary fermentations were employed with only yeast hulls and oxygen used to aid fermentations. A 3-day cold soak was used as was extended maceration with the wine staying on skins for approximately 30 days
This wine will age fantastically well, easily over ten years from release. If you have the patience, hold for at least 2 years from release. Decant prior to enjoying.
Extended barrel aging of 21 months in all French oak, approximately 50% of which was new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
