In short

“After a great surfing experience in Bali we ended on a high with the best surf at this special spot called Kedungu in my hungover state. This experience and energy were transferred into the wine when we bottled a few months after my trip.” Total Production 6000 bottles Alc: 11.5% pH: 3.61 TA: 5.8 g/L

Description

The vines were established between 1980’s and 2000 on different rootstocks due to the various soil profiles. They are all untrellised and dry farmed. The blend consists of Syrah/Cinsault/Mourvèdre (50/45/5) and every vintage component differs due to the growing conditions that change every season. Syrah, the backbone of this blend, contributes to the structure and freshness of the wine. Cinsault adds a lovely mid palate and vibrance with loads of red fruits. The Mourvèdre provides tannin structure and depth as well as darker fruit.

In the vineyard
Dry farm lands - no irrigation. Nature Wine
In the cellar
Whole bunch fermented under semi-carbonic conditions for 8 days in stainless steel tanks. Aged in a mixture of different size (228L and 500L) old French oak barrels which help preserve these vibrant flavours. Sulphur the only additive after malolactic fermentation.
Pairing suggestions
The grippy tannins in this wine makes for pairing well with any red meat dishes especially Lamb cuttings. We have done a few beef pairings and the darker fruit is a great combination with the tender meat.
