'Low winter rainfall with blustery weather during flowering resulted in a small crop. Hand-picked on 11th April, 80% destemmed, 20% whole-bunch fermented, all indigenous yeast, pressed to French oak (20% new), matured for 20 months in barrel. Unfined. Alc 14.2%.'

“Quite restrained to begin, earthy/ dusty notes adding a grounding for the black cherry/ berry compote aromas to take their time. Delicious weight on the palate, the ripeness spot on, a fine balancing act with 20% whole bunches and 20% new oak over 20 months. Everything here in the right place. Cellaring should prompt further pleasures.” 95/100 Tony Love, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
