A blend of late ripening spicy red varieties.
Deepest red, the aroma is slow to release but eventually reveals dark berries, undergrowth and liquorice notes.
The palate is tight with josterberry and dried currant fruit with a spine of acidity and grape skin tannins giving a long dry finish.
This new release, 2016, is the first of the 'semi secco' blend. Bob had noticed that our Tannat grapes would begin to shrivel on the vine, way before they were fully ripe. After attending a tasting of Speri Amarone wines, he thought partially drying the grapes indoors when they began shrivelling, could add a new dimension to this blend. The colour is much deeper & overall has delivered a much fuller bodied wine, which we will continue with.
We'd love your feedback!
