Clear

Description

Made from two separate parcels: the lower one, with reddish soil, was more affected by frost than the white soils above, meaning that more fruit than usual from the upper plot went into the blend, resulting in a more linear wine than usual. There is a pure, clean backbone to this densely textured wine, which supports the clear red fruit, elements of spice, very fine minerality and long fresh finish.
