The grapes were wild yeast fermented in small batches, 30% whole-bunch, partial whole-berry and 100% matured in older French oak barrels for 10 months. Aromas of dark cherry, Davidson plum and pine forest floor, the palate combines flavours of wild berries and allspice with seamless tannins and a fine complex finish.
