Complex and alluring bouquet of tropical fruits, gooseberries and pink grapefruit with a touch of burnt matchstick and oak. The palate has a crunchy acid backbone with quaver and paw paw fruits, savoury flavours rounded out with subtle oak. This wine is designed for cellaring up to 8 years and to be enjoyed with seafood.

Reviews

Wine Comapinon  

Whole-bunch pressed with the first 500l (of 700l) retained, wild-fermented in French oak over 10 days, matured for 6 months. The fruit has soaked up the oak to the point of balance, and the wine has outstanding length, the flavours of grapefruit zest and pith encircled by acidity (and residual oak).
