the wine has been made with absolutely no additions except for a small dose of SO2 just prior to bottling. It has spent 15 months in a combination of steel and old barriques. High solids and high temperatures for fermentation by indigenous yeasts assist with texture as does malolactic fermentation. I love the strong blackcurrant aroma’s which betray the relationship between sauvignon blanc and cabernet sauvignon as well as the smoky ‘sauvage’ characters. There is a creamy note on the nose as well which indicates the use of malolactic fermentation.
The palate is serious. There is a great drive through the wine. There is good acidity and back palate grip and punch. It is appropriately bone dry and very textural. It is crying out for some fish!
