TASTING NOTES

Barrel-fermented dimension adds additional depth and complexity whilst retaining the linear qualities associated with grapes planted on south-east facing aspects. A dense portrayal of sun-kissed tropical fruits, a true ‘outlier’.

HARVESTING

Harvested between the 13th and 18th February 2019 at approxi-mately 22.7°B.

WINEMAKING & MATURATION

The grapes received 6 – 10 hours skin contact before being gently pressed in a “pneumatic” tank press. After inoculation, the juice was fermented in 10% new French oak barrels and the rest in second, third, and fourth-fill barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers with a 10% American oak barrel selection). The wine spent 8 months “sur lie” with occasional “batonage” to accentuate the leesy character. 40% tank-fermented sauvignon blanc was added to the blend.
