Description

The wine has an initial brightness and clarity of fruit , before the darker, brooding notes come out on the nose. Black cherry and dark plum come forward on the palate, with a softness and suppleness of ripe tannins giving a rounded structure and lasting aftertaste. Some bright red berry flavours are balanced with subtle spice and savoury characteristics that enhance and lengthen the palate. Drink now or cellar for up to five years. The grapes were grown at our various Dakins Road blocks with a small quantity from our Bideford block. A variety of clones (Dijon, 10/5 and Abel) give a well balanced wine that expresses opulent, dark fruit and savoury, spicy elements. We hand picked all the fruit and processed it with utmost care to ensure maximum quality and site expression. The fruit was crushed and destemmed with about 40% of the fruit left as whole berries. The fruit was gravity fed into small open top plastic fermenters. All clones were vinified and matured in separate batches and only blended together at the very last stage of winemaking. Yeasts were inoculated and the ferments plunged twice daily to help soft extraction of colour and tannins from the skins. We gave a post-ferment maceration for up to two weeks to allow optimal body and structure in the wine. The wine was then matured in individual batches for 10 months before final blending. No finings were needed and the wine is a true expression of minimalist intervention, site-specific winemaking.
