Dense purple colour, the nose displays notes of blueberry, kirsch, marzipan and an intense licorice spice. The wine is incredibly dense and multi - layered yet still retains an elegance and softness as well as a textural purity that few wines can achieve.
Supple tannins from the gentle press merely complement the fruit, silky and rich yet impressively interwoven into the wine. The fruit/acid balance ensures excellent length and provides a purity of structure for long term ageing.
Fermented in French oak puncheons, hand plunged 3 times daily. Completed MLF in oak and then matured for 24 months in oak, matured on lees to maintain structure and fruit profile, minimal SO2
