Appearance: Pale coral pink.
Aroma: Lifted aromatics of Turkish delight, rose water and white flowers lead into blueberry compote and lavender spice.
Palate: Vibrant fruits of blueberry and strawberry on the front palate lead into the textural and subtly spiced characters of barrel fermentation – hints of cashew, toasted oats, fennel seed and lemon curd, before a soft, talc-like acid line ensures a long, textural, mouth-watering finish.
Oak Detail: Whole bunch pressed direct to seasoned French oak barriques for wild fermentation and subsequent 5 month’s maturation on ferment lees to build palate weight and texture.
Cellaring: Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to drink well over the next 2 years.
