A fresh and vibrant red with notes of strawberries and raspberries, leather, dried herbs and lavender. Full-bodied with soft tannins and light hints of crushed stones. Delicate and easy to drink. Juicy. Sustainable. Drink or hold. Rating: 93 James Suckling, (Jan 2022)

A total of eight vineyards, each with a unique contribution to the wine’s complexity, are picked by hand and cooled overnight, before being destemmed. Following fermentation by certified organic yeasts, each parcel was pressed individually and transferred to French oak barrels. After eleven months maturation, the final blend was assembled in tank and bottled following four months of natural clarification. Tasting note: The wine exhibits the generous texture of the vintage, moderately rich yet supple. Intriguing perfumed dark cherry and wild berry, with espresso infused cinnamon spice adding to the appeal. Deftly balanced, it portrays elegance, but the tannins form neatly on a lengthy finish.Winemaker's notes (Aug 2021)
