The lighter of the three reds, this is a Bordeaux style wine with a soft ripeness to the fruit which makes it immediately drinkable.

In the vineyard

Following an average of 28 days on skins the wines were carefully pressed to barrel to undergo natural malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wines were then racked once to the blend and settled in ta nk for 4months before filtration and bottling.

In the winery

Each parcel of fruit was kept separate through to the final blending sessions 15 months after harvest. All hand harvested fruit.

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    Ža lovely subtle scent of smoked bacon and then bay leaf coming throughÁ.. A sweet entry, peppery black fruits with that trait of bay leaf returning. Vibrant acidity, a little angular towards the finish but there is an attractive purity here with a spicy finish.
