A vibrant coral pink in colour, slightly turbid.
On the nose there is lifted fruit aromas of pink grapefruit and blood orange citrus with notes of strawberry, pomegranate with slight flick of Campari.
The palate is lushly fruited and juicy with red apple skin, pear flesh and lychee flavors cascading their way along a vibrant line of acidity. The fruits are complemented by a positive tannin line which provides texture and complexity.
Destemmed to fermenter for natural fermentation. Fermenters were sealed and the wine was held on skins for a period of two months with no intervention.
The must was then pressed directly to old French oak casks for settling for an additional two months before being racked and bottled with no filtration, only a small Sulphur addition has been made to this wine
