(2023) This comes from grey clay loam, and is made from the Mendoza clone with its 'hen and chick' tendency. It was fermented and aged 10 months in 500-litre French oak, 28% new barrels, and partially with wild yeasts. A lovely quality of oak here, fragrant and honeyed, with ripe stone fruits and lemon giving freshness. On the palate there's a soft, crushed almond quality to this, creamy in fruit and texture, a fine citrus core of acidity extending the finish. Price and stockist below are for an earlier vintage.
