Red berries and pomegranate, with a brooding intensity and a dusting of Asian spices.
A complete palate experience for such a youthful wine. Abundant red fruits with hints of blueberry and black cherry that drive through the mid palate. The finest powdery tannins sit around the intense fruit core, softening the edges and providing a velvet smooth finish.
Fruit was hand harvested and then fermented in a combination of stainless steel, oak and concrete. Ferments were made up, on average, of 50% whole bunches and 50% de-stemmed whole berries. The whole bunches contribute to its aromatic intensity and a spicy flavour profile. With only a short period of maturation in barrel, we were able to catch it smack-bang in the approachable Other Wine Co. spectrum. It was fined and filtered before bottling in December 2019.
A mild, even vintage with very few extremes of heat or cold, resulting in fruit that ripened slowly with great concentration, power and natural acidity.
