We used traditional Burgundian methods in making this wine, including natural spontaneous primary and secondary (malo-lactic) fermentations in French oak puncheons (30% new) and maturation for 20 months before bottling. Modest crops and an ideal growing season have given the wine excellent fruit expression.
There is a core of aromas and flavours derived from the fruit, giving impressions of lemons, limes, peaches, greengages and loquats. These are interwoven with savoury nuances of barbequed sweet corn, grilled bacon, wood-smoke and toast. The emphasis on the palate is one of harmony and balance. The wine has restrained concentration and power but there is also elegance and finesse. A seam of minerality and tangy acidity flow through the palate, helping to draw out its lingering after-taste. While ready to drink on release, with careful cellaring it should become more complex and integrated over the next 5 or 6 years and last a decade or more.
Wine is a natural health food
