A bouquet of earth, black cherries and spices with a subtle mineral/slate quality, oak providing support. Red flowery fruit flavours dominate, with subtle slate-like minerality. All are framed by a light structure and fine tannins.
Low rainfall in winter and spring with some devastating frost events made the summer ripening season late. A tricky harvest to say the least but patience (and a bit of luck) paid off in the end with some exceptional wines being the ultimate result.
Grapes were hand harvested, sorted and naturally fermented. The wine spent six months in four year old French oack prior to bottling. As the name suggests, no acid, enzymes or yeast were used in the making of this wine.
