The profile of this wine is based on the vines planted on a variation of Shale and Clay based soils and the wine therefore expresses the broad richness of the clay on the palate and aromatic tropical fruit and mineral character on the nose. Using a blend of yeasts and the intrigue achieved with the portion of Semillon, it shows concentrated tropical melon and pear drop, with a hint of lemon grass character and a full mineral follow through on the palate.
Black, meaty and appealing on the nose. There are complex aromas of ripe red fruit mixed with notes of wood. The palate is soft and has round, voluptuous tannins resulting in a good balance and fantastic length.
The nose has jasmine tea notes with white pepper held together by a fine sandy structure. On the palate there are bright floral and mineral nuances with a lingeringly spicy, ginger and exotic finish. A hugely and broadly appealing and accessible Gewürz.
