V I N T A G E

A blessing after the vicissitudes of 2019 and 2020. Winter rainfall a bit patchy, but overall approached average by around Christmas a couple of nice rain events in the New Year to freshen up after the odd hot day, but generally a mild harvest period to the end. Good bunch number and bunch weights for ultra-premium wines.

S T Y L E

Deeper, but lovely resolved colour. Bright and clear limpidity but avoiding any brash luminosity. A mix of sweet cacao and black fruit on the nose. A hint of licorice too, with the palate showing a depth and roundness, with excellent weight, but also with a liveliness that the 2021’s possess. Again, a little air brings out the red fruit perfumes and a delicious touch of vanillin oak perfume.

V I N I F I C A T I O N

Generally a small amount of whole bunch (10-15%) used. A frequent but gentle degree of cap management via both rack and return and pumpovers. After a coolish ferment over 10-14 days. The 2021 was pressed into a blend of French and American Oak with 12% New. After 26 months the wine was settled naturally and bottled.
