Harvest Date

5 March 2018

Vineyards

Malakoff vineyard, Pyrenees

Viticulture

A warm and dry growing season allowed good crops of fruit to ripen to maturity. Good foliage canopies were needed to give some fruit shading.

Wine Making

Carefully hand harvested fruit was picked in the cool of the morning to retain vibrancy. The fruit was destemmed into small open fermenters, where wild yeast performed their magic. The wine was then pressed and left to rest in 20 % new French barrels.

Colour

Bouquet

White pepper spice, dark plums, and fig fruit. Hints of cinnamon spice.

Palate

Satsuma plums and blackcurrant fruits explode onto the front palate. Pepper spices and cinnamon add further intrigue. Fine but firm tannins build through the palate leading to a crescendo of flavours that resonate with the drinker long after the wine has left ones lips. A full bodied wine with great length and depth.
