Tasting notes

Picked at 11.5% vol., packed with natural acidity. Whole bunch press. Settling of juice overnight. NTU not going below 300, meaning this juice is nice and dirty, and still packed with terroir. Spontaneous ferment started in stainless steel tank. Allowed to finish in stainless steel to ensure
long slow fermentation without any MLF starting. Keeping the wine tight and fresh. Fermentation lasted +/-3 months. Wine taken to barrel. 500ℓ – 2 x 2nd fill and 1 x 3rd fill. 14 months in barrel. 10% MLF allowed. No stirring, rolling or jumping on the barrels. Bottled 4 weeks ago.



Pairing

Enjoy with Steak Béarnaise, Pumpkin Ravioli, Cheddar
Cheese Soufflé.
