The 2018 was fermented wild with 10% whole-bunch and spent two weeks on skins. Maturation was for 12 months in French oak hogsheads (20% new), before blending and bottling in early 2019. This is a superb example of this wine, arguably the best we’ve seen. Perfumed, deep yet superbly sculpted and layered with wonderful, cherry-cola fruit and loads of spice. You see the purity and brightness of the vintage, and the evolution in the vines really shines through.
