“Another dry year, 327mm rain. Thankfully the growing season was much cooler and with a few later rains the vines maintained good canopies to harvest. Great tasting fruit was the result. Yields still very low 3t/ha. Harvest started the second week of Feb and lasted 2 weeks. Grapes were hand-picked and transferred to concrete tanks whole bunch. The bunches were foot stomped where after natural fermentation took place.” – Callie
On the nose, red and black fruit, violets, herbs, olive and earth while the palate is super-concentrated with fresh acidity and, as mentioned, oh so fine tannins. A wine of great poise and detail, this is world class.
