Estate Blend


Medium bodied in style, the nose displays sour dark cherry and dark plums. Well balanced with both power and finesse. Drinking incredibly well, but will reward with cellaring.


100% handpicked on 5 March 2018. Matured in seasoned French oak barriques & hogs heads, with wild malolactic fermentation. Made with 20% whole bunches and a few other secret, “left-field” techniques, Hand bottled by gravity, without fining or filtration on 6 December 2018.
