(2022) There are some used barrels (barriques and 500-litre puncheons) used for fermentation and aging of this wine, which comes from the home vineyards in the Eden Valley. Virgilius is in fact a barrel selection, this wine effectively being the remainder of the wine. Louisa says she looks for the more 'open' barrels for this wine with bold fruit character. There is a tiny bit of almond nuttiness, a hint of ginger spice, and apricot and peach fruit. The palate is medium- to full-bodied, with plenty of ripe apricot fruit, but a bit of fruit skin grip and again that dry, quite pithy acidity of the finish.
