Wine Companion 2018

Hand-picked, 5 days cold soak, open-fermented, up to 50% whole bunches, 14 days on skins, matured for 9 months in French puncheons (35% new). Fragrance and elegance personified. Juicy cherry fruit opens proceedings, then mouthwatering acidity and fine-grained tannins draw out the lingering finish. Amen.
