Subtle aromatics of plum dark cherries, warm toffee, purple plums, sawn oak with a lift of raspberry. A medium weighted palate being bright rather than brooding.  A pop of cherry and ripe raspberry, Christmas spice with a touch of marzipan, all flowing into a balanced finish of sweet fruit, dosage and bead.


One of the best, close to perfect vintages in the last 10 years. January was warm with good rainfall setting up the vines with an ideal amount of soil moisture. This was followed by a month of cool and dry conditions, perfect for slow and steady fruit ripening. The cooler conditions and even ripening resulted in producing fine elegant wines.


Selected from our S5 and 470 clones planted on the warm, north facing ‘F’ block, the wine was produced separately in small batches.  The fruits were fermented in open pots, of which one had a ‘sandwich’ layer of whole bunches, starting with a cold soak, and hand plunging, before being pressed at dryness.  Batched separately and matured in large format French oak for 8 months.


Breakfast!  Spanish baked eggs, on chorizo, red pepper and beans, tomato, paprika and baby spinach.
