This single-block wine is sourced from 0.79 ha of gently sloping 24-year-old vines. These vines naturally produce low yields due to a combination of unique orientation, free drainage, and high exposure. Together with this, the soil has a far greater prevalence of ironstone pebbles than any other part of the vineyard and delivers wine with great concentration and savoury tannic presence. This wine was fermented in a large-format wooden vat. The ferment, with a portion of whole bunches, occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 17 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (20% of which were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with a total maturation period of 14 months. It was then bottled without fining or filtration.

Bright and energetic, with aromas of red florals, orange peel, and blue fruits combined with dark woodsy spice and undergrowth. Chewy, sinewy tannins and smoky spice fill the mouth, together with flavours of violet and black cherry. With excellent drive and expansion, the palate is long, enveloping, and firm, yet pretty. Expressing well now, this wine will gain greater complexity with time in the cella
