Pale salmon in colour. Aromas of raspberry and crushed strawberry merge to pink grapefruit citrus, with notes of talc, spice and flint adding complexity and allure. Vibrant and focused on the palate, cranberry and raspberry flavours together with strawberries and cream flow along a vivid line of grapefruit-like acidity. Barrel fermented lees notes add mid palate sweetness while a chalky phenolic line provides length and depth, and a long and bright finish.
The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left on lees for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
