Climate & Viticulture
The 2022 harvest benefitted from good winter rains and full dams, which set the tone for a cool, even growing season.
Following careful hand-picking, a portion of the bunches were destemmed and transferred to fermentation tanks using a gravity system, allowing for whole berry fermentation, while the rest went in as whole bunch. Naturally fermented and aged in older French barrique fornine months.
A broody, tightly wound vintage showing classic notes of violets and earth as well as sour cherries and a spiciness from rainbow pepper and nutmeg. There is a vegetal, leafy earthiness to the palate as well as graphite-like acidity to hold up that dense core of fruit.
