Product Overview

Winery's Notes:
"Grown in the sandy, clay soils of our Osmington family vineyard. Planted in 1998 with rows running north to south on a gentle northeast facing slope. The vineyard is in biodynamic conversion. We treat it like a veg patch, heavy compost in Autumn and sheep snapping the odd wire as they browse in winter.

Picked in mid-April after a hot summer and wet autumn. The juice was wild fermented on skins, until dry. It was then pressed to a mix of new & old French barriques. A single racking after the Spring equinox otherwise it sits on full lees until February, topping every two weeks. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation from Autumn to Spring giving a natural CO2 cover during maturation. The wine remains undisturbed with minimal sulphur added prior to bottling in February. High-quality, smaller corks provide a more drinkable style through bottle aging. The wine is unfined & unfiltered so may present some harmless deposits in the bottle.

Fresh blue and dark mulberried fruit on the nose with notes of earth, sage leaves and dried lavender flowers. A deep and rich palate of plums and red pastille fruit is layered over spiced chocolate finishing with long pristine tannins."

95 Points, "Editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"There's a lovely fruity lightness to this, in comparison to the density of some Margaret River Cabs, with an elegant perfume of red currant, bay leaf and savory spice. The succulent, silky fruit washes over the tongue first, the fine, spicy tannins creeping in later. A focused, food-friendly drop that's deliciously drinkable right now." -CP, 4/1/24
