These rare, near extinct vines produce unique yet fascinating fruit. In turn, the wine made from them is equally beguiling. Some skin contact lends an incandescent, roseate hue, breadth of palate and subtle tannin. Crushed by foot and left to macerate whole cluster for a few days, then pressed and naturally fermented in neutral puncheons and stainless steel followed by 6 month elevage in neutral barrique.
A veritable highwire act; light on it’s feet, wildly floral yet savory with a visceral depth. An inebriating blend of summer melon, stone fruit, white tea and wet rock weave with finessed length and elegant palate presence. 12.2% ABV.
