Fine tannins, bright acidity with bay leaf and black current. Long sinewy tannins on the finish.
A very dry winter and spring (driest in 100 years). These dry conditions continued throughout summer. Good rainfalls in February provided much needed moisture. Very low crops but exceptional reds.
Made in a clay cement ovoid tank -a giant "egg" -the lees are continuously forced upward by an internal current resembling a vortex. This gives the wine voluptuousness, purity and texture. There’s no added tannin, acid, or animal fining products. There is zero sulfur used throughout the winemaking, andonly a minimal amountat bottling.
