This single-block wine is sourced from 0.75 ha of 24-year-old vines within, as the name suggests, the most sheltered of our vineyard sites. The lack of exposure to strong winds allows the vines to keep a rich green canopy until comparatively late in the ripening period and the resulting Haven wines always possess fruit in the more purplish spectrum, with a certain richness and lushness yet a firm underlying tannic structure. The vineyard (6.88 ha in total) comprises seven different parcels, with the same two parcels historically being selected for this wine.

The fruit was entirely de-stemmed and fermentation took place in large-format wooden and stainless-steel tanks. Fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 17 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (25% of which were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with the total maturation period lasting 14 months. It was then bottled without fining or filtration.

The tightly-wound nose displays red cherry, dark berries, orange peel and red florals, complemented by intriguing spice and dried herb elements. The palate is medium bodied with a juicy, sappy black cherry core balanced by fine spicy tannins. Great length and bright acidity deliver a vibrant finish. Needing time to open, this wine will reward time in the cellar.
