Maturation:

The hand harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed to retain the pristine fruit characters and minimise phenolic extraction. The juice was then transferred to French oak barrels, 20% of which were new, for fermentation and maturation on lees, with monthly stirring, for 10 months prior to bottling in February 2019.

Light straw-yellow hue. Intense smoky sulfides over complex toasted bread and roasted hazelnut aromas; the palate intense and firm, very dry and full thanks in part to some tannin grip. There’s ample body and richness. A full-on style that would suit a hearty roast chicken dinner. 03 JUL 2019
