Region

Volume

Sourced from the 2014-planted Bedford Vineyard, on the western side of the valley. Abel, 777 and 942 clones on mostly free-draining, stony, gravelly soils. Hard-harvested, 100% destemmed and wild fermented with twice daily hand-plunging. 14 months' maturation in French oak, 15% new. Unfined and unfiltered. Light ruby in colour with bright pink reflections. Despite its bright appearance, there's loads of complexity, with deep notes of white mushroom, dark cherries, and freshly turned earth. -...Read More...
