Vines are planted north to south, soils are highly mineral siltstones which produce a most interesting wine. Blocks which can enjoy less exposure contribute the greatest detail to the final wine. When optimum flavour in the ripening berries is achieved, grapes are hand picked, whole bunch crushed and pressed to extract some good phenolics for texture and minerality. Juices are cold settled for clarity, racked to a selection of seasoned French oak casks and treated to a wild indigenous yeast fermentation. Lees are stirred regularly from the late autumn until early spring. Components are matured for up to a year in a selection of prior use 225 Litres French oak barriques.
Light straw with green hues. White flowers and hazelnut, complex mineral notes, citrus and fig, flintyness and peach. Gently textured, slightly savoury palate of refined phenolics, hazel nuttynesss and crisp nervy acid, good drive and length. Long flavoured, textural, a bliss with John Dory or gnocchi and creamy sage sauce.
