Description

Straw colured with green hues. Burnt match and gunflint sits over grapefruit, lemon, white flowers and green skinned nectarine. The impression is of leanness and tightness, of treading lower ripeness. The palate is beautifully integrated and complex, revealing more with time in the glass. Flint and wet stones, slate, nectarines, papaya and white flowers carried on a seamlessly textured, creamy medium body. The finish is all green apples and lemons – persistent, long and precise with savoury phenolics and mineral refreshment. Linear, formed and complex.

Winemaking Notes

All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to whole bunch pressing directly to French oak puncheons for natural fermentation. 20% of the barrels were new. Post-fermentation, the wine was matured on its fermentation lees for 10 months in barrel followed by a further 6 months in tank prior to bottling after a single filtration.

Growing Conditions

A cool spring wet spring followed by a long, dry autumn, with low crops and strong varietal characters. Flowering occurred in late October, fruit set in December and harvest on March 17th 12.5° baume.
