Perfumed and floral with spicy red fruits and fresh toasty oak.
Medium bodied with bright acidity and fine slatey tannins. Perfumed floral red fruits with charcurterie (preserved cooked meat flavours) and toasty oak continue on the palate.
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.
