(2022) From vineyards planted in silica over sandstone in 1988 in the southerly Coal River Valley. Wild-fermentation and 12 months ageing in French oak barriques, one-third new. Lees was stirred monthly and the wine went through malolactic. Again, gunflinty smokiness all over the aromatics here, the most prominent example here of the style, some buttery toast and stone fruits beneath. The Palate bursts with sweet and ripe fruit, nodding towards the tropical, but focused around fat, sweet but sharp lime and lemon. Great length here, the balance very good as that flinty and salty aspect is present, but not overplayed. Delicious.
