(2021) From 39-year-old vines, and all Gingin clone, fermenation of whole bunches in French oak barriques (30% new) with wild yeasts. Nine months of batonnage, before certain barrels were selected for this bottling. This has one of the most subtle, nutty, crushed oatmeal and almond characters on the nose, the fruit like melon and ripe Cox's pippin apple. Lovely sweetness as it strikes the palate, lovely ripeness and mouthwatering peach juice fruit, but it is soon swept up in mineral salts and lemon, a gently supportive underpinning of creamy oak, but glistening and pure into the finish. Great elegance and power.
