Yields at this precious vineyard are a meagre one to two tonnes per hectare. Grapes are hand picked and teated to a chilled vinification in open top concrete fermenters, before transfer to exclusively new French oak puncheons and hogsheads for completion, malolactic and twenty two months maturation.
Deep purple/ black colour. Sweetly perfumed aromas of blackberries and candied plum, vanilla and oaken spice. Concentrated and lush palate showing dense dark berry fruits and suave baking spice notes, seasoned by savouryness and herb. Ashmead boasts excellent precision, harmony and depth, incredible persistence as the wine lingers on an immeasurably long finish.
