The 2018 vintage was warmer than the 2017 vintage which gives aromas of darker fruit such as blueberry or blackberry. The palate has a touch of raspberry, morello cherry & a whisper of oak. Fine supple, savoury tannins & great length. A wine of power, charm & grace.
This wine is made from a single patch of MV6 – rows 33 – 35. The bunches are destemmed but the resulting skin and juice mix contains 95% whole berries.
Production notes and Chemistry
