The Wine Front – Fresh, frisky, strawberry and mint, perfumed too, and a modest amount of smoky earthiness. Limpid and fine, cool feeling, with a stroke of emery tannin, sap and spice, and a lively finish of excellent length. Beautifully made and so pleasing to drink. Touch and go for a higher score. 94 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front June 2020
About This Wine
The wine is a mix of several clones: D5, MV6 and 777. The grapes were destemmed into an open stainless-steel pot and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine was pressed after two weeks on skins to barrels (30% new) with full solids. It went through malolactic fermentation in the spring. After 12 months in barrel the wine was blended into tank where it sat for two months on fine lees. It was given a light filtration and bottled in August 2019. Smoke, roses and leatherwood honey on the nose with glacé cherry. Bright and focused, grace and poise. Seemingly light frame yet very athletic structure - streamlined, toned acid and silky tannin with subtle authority. Elegant structure and great clarity. Savoury finish.
