The wine shows aromas of rose petal and black cherry as well as black currant and raspberry fruit characters. The nose also shows violets and subtle pencily oak. It is complex and savoury with a finely structured palate.
The fruit was hand harvested and fully destemmed into open fermenters. Chiller plates were left on for 48 hours and then given an initial pump over to homogenise the juice. No additions were made at any point.
The ferment is pumped over daily until it slowed, and the cap softened. From which time a regime of watch and listen (or smell) was initiated. The cap was only plunged as required. After approximately three weeks maceration the wine was pressed and filled to neutral oak barrels for 12 months before bottling without fining or filtration. Once again, a minimum Sulphur addition takes place at bottling.
