Made by Peter Fraser - 2016 Winemaker of the Year (James Halliday Wine Companion) with great emphasis on perfume, tension and precision. Lifted noted of florals, cherries & herbs. Excellent acid & tannin structure. Elegant fruit, with a long finish of lingering freshness and purity. The vibrant fruit of the dry-grown 1946 planted bush vines is rewarded with a long, luxurious ferment and a whole Autumn on skins in big ceramic eggs.

Vines planted in 1946. Hand picked, sorted, destemmed, crushed and tipped into two 657 litre ceramic eggs. Kept on skins for 191 days post ferment; this is full of grape tannin goodness. No oak time at all; ceramic eggs only. It smells of grapes. It smells of the earth. It smells wild or free or something like that. It’s red-fruited with a trace of licorice, shows a gentle line of chicory, is spicy and earthen, and has a keen insistence to the finish. Tannin here, silty, is quite gorgeous. It has flare but it also has understatement. It’s a wine to take to the world.
