Description

Wild-fermented on skins in amphorae for two weeks before pressing off to an aged French barrique, on fine lees. Regular lees-stirring for three months before hand-bottling straight from barrel. Unfined, unfiltered, bare minimum of sulphur.

Light brick red colour with purple hues. Vibrant sour red cherry and purple plum aromas, some rose-petal florals, herbal sage and thyme, and a potpourri of scented spice and earth.

The palate is medium-weight yet with concentrated flavours of sweet plum and savoury tomato. Exotic spice and delicate pepper, perfume, earth, leather and leaf.

Enjoy with or without food.

PLEASE NOTE: ONE BOTTLE PER ORDER ONLY!

    Sub-titled ‘The stars baby, the stars!’. Winemaker Brad Wehr said nice things about me on Instagram the other day, so I thought I’d better review some of his wine. See how being nice gets you somewhere? 20 dozen made. Amphora. Straight to bottle from that vessel. Seems to be sold out on the website.
    Sour cherry, plum, a lot of exotic spice, something a bit resinous and herbal, and certainly has that orange peel amaro kind of tang. Light to medium bodied, juicy but set to sweet and sour in profile, with that aromatic amaro stuff a distinct pulse, and a gently creamy and powder finish of fine length. Here’s a drink. Delicious. 92 Points.
