Holy Moly. This is something new. An RS of 3g/L, and fermented in our new concrete tanks whereby nuance and character is revealed ever so gently. This wine is going to be an amazing wine to follow in the coming decades.
Unusually for an RS this was a blend of first and second pick. First pick went straight to concrete for ferment which is so vivid and riveting, blended with some second pick fermented in large oak, bringing a fine supple texture that veers from the highly recognisable RS style we know to a structural clarity that seems just a little more amplified than normal.
It’s hard not to smile when drinking this wine. Ridiculously low alcohol, subtle in every sense and so easy to consume. Fermented and matured in concrete and oak gives surprising depth and clarity.
