Production

Grapes are picked from the Bonoposto vineyard in Kenton Valley, Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. The soil is light red clay loam over granite. Hand harvested and split into two fermenters - one 100% whole bunch fermentation, the other completely destemmed. Both were fermented wild with plunging/footstomping for cap management. Gently basket pressed post fermentation and aged for 18 months in old puncheons, with one being a second-fill to give a delicate oak influence. Blended prior to bottling.

Tasting notes

With the colour of arterial blood, the nose reveals wild berries,rhubarb and custard. A driving and electric acidity supporting the bold berry flavours. With subtle structure and spice hidden in the mix.

Food match

Gamey meats, pizza or pasta amatriciana.
