Released November 2023

Another cool and European style of season produced elegant and aromatic Tempranillo with fine, velvety tannins. The 2022 harvest was even later than the late 2021 season and the crop enjoyed the benefits of long, slow ripening without extreme temperatures.

Tempranillo was hand-picked in ten small parcels over late March and early April 2023.  Each separate batch was chilled and cold soaked prior to natural ferment in open pots with extensive hand plunging. Some batches had a percentage of stalk and whole bunch inclusion and others, extended post ferment-maceration.

Each wine was then basket pressed before being put to barrel for maturation in French barriques (25% new) for eleven months, retaining malo lees for texture and complexity before blending and filtration.

Svelte and perfumed, with aromas of black cherry, violets, musk, sarsaparilla and charred meats.  The palate shows poise and balance.  It is mid-weight with fleshy dark fruits, black cherry and sarsaparilla, spice, bitter chocolate, and char, licked together with fine, powdery, tongue-coating tannins. 

Beautifully elegant and balanced.

Drink 2024-2035.
