Vintage 2011 experienced new record-breaking climatic extremes, both in winter rainfall and summer heat. A difficult growing season and harvest due to delayed ripening. Fine harvest weather.

Made from selected grapes, grown sustainably in our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 13 months in French (100%) oak barrels, and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak components. Bottled, unfined and lightly filtered in March 2013. May be subject to throw a deposit.

An intense palate with rich fruit and notes of mint and chocolate.
