In short

“Almost Barolo-esque in the tar and roses elements but without the intense tannins. Truly smoky meaty almost sanguine on the palate but with a delightfully soft black cherry element.”

Description

Botrivier fruit, sourced from the Gabriëlskloof farm. Grapes were de-stemmed and transferred to open bins – a mix of whole and crushed berries, alongside a layer of whole bunches – a layer cake approach, which brings out more of a carbonic maceration, allowing greater fruit presence and perfume in the bouquet. Cold-soak for 5 days with gentle punch downs, and as natural Fermentation starts, the cap gets wetted by gently punching down in the bins. The fruit is then gently pressed by pneumatic press, the resulting juice is left to finish natural fermentation in third-fill old French 225L barrels Total production of 540 bottles, six Magnums, and 1x6Litre.
