Description

CELLAR INFORMATION 16 months in French oak barrels, 50 % new VINEYARD INFORMATION Leaf fall occurred later than usual which allowed good reserves to build up in the vines. The similarly delayed onset of Winter allowed for good cold unit accumulation. Rainfall was the lowest to date. Days were warm and nights cool. Budding occurred later and flowering was uniform. A dry, warm season resulted in compact berries with some supplementary irrigation necessary. A cooler February allowed for even ripening. An abundant vintage of exceptional quality.

Reviews

Greg Sherwood 94

Colour: Light Bright Red. Nose: Lovely and perfumed with lavender and white pepper spice sprinkled over lusciously dark, sultry berries. Swirls of strawberry cream add delectable richness. Palate: Chalky on the palate with dense, juicy core of pure fruit – blueberries, raspberries and a hint of cherry. Fresh and alive with herbal notes of oregano and bay and beautifully silky, balanced tannins. [01/01/2023]
