Description

Harvest Data

Vintage detail: What a lovely vintage this was. Favourable cool conditions prevailed from the pea stage to véraison and December was characterized by less wind than usual. The advantages of these circumstances were less water usage by the plant, easier canopy management and less input required to manage vineyards. The beginning of the ripening period was very hot, with the mercury spiking above 35°C for four days in mid-January, but the nights cooled down which made it better for the ripening.

A wine with a black-red colour. Gentle spice with sweet fruit flavour and violets on the nose follows through to an elegantly, smooth palate and ends with a savoury frame supported by soft ripe tannins with lots of structure to age a few more years.
