Deep lively crimson
Pure and energetic. Lavender, rolled tobacco, summer pudding and cinnamon.
Medum to full-bodied with intense raspberry compote, salted licorice, and fresh concrete. The wonderful acid spine carries the flavours and balance beautifully and the tight knit tannins provide the structure for a long and morish finish.
Fruit is hand-picked from dry-grown, established bush vines on our Swinney Wilson’s Pool vineyard. Multiple fruit thinning and selective hand harvesting over several passes ensures we achieve as close to perfect fruit as possible.
The fruit was hand-picked, destemmed, berry sorted and emptied to small wooden and stainless steel fermenters via gravity.
We incorporated 15% whole bunches and wild fermentation to
build structure and texture and provide the framework on which to express the distinctive aromatics and flavours of Grenache.
The wine spent two weeks on skins prior to pressing directly to fine grained, large format, seasoned French oak, and was aged for
11 months prior to bottling.
The wine was made with minimum effective Sulphites, is unfined and minimally filtered.
