Each pocket of fruit, selected according to three different soils, was handled and harvested separately. The grapes from the soil with a higher percentage of clay were traditionally punched down and the balance from the soil with the most sand-lime percentage was pumped over. After 26 months in 100% new French oak, the barrels that delivered the best fruit expression of the terroir were selected. Tasting Notes: Piles of blackcurrant, spicy and wild-berry fruit on the nose and palate. A wine with savoury, well integrated fruit and wood tannin, with an alluring combination of elegant plummy fruit flavours.
