17/20, Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

This wine is highly aromatic, with pretty red fruits and exotic spice. The palate is medium bodied and delicious, showing wild strawberry, dried cranberry and rhubarb flavours. There’s some nice dried herb and baking spice nuances to this wine, supported by decent amounts of acidity and tannin. It’s fresh and vibrant now, however, this wine will mellow further with some age.

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of new and used French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. This wine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.
