Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Bright strawberry and cream and cranberry fruit with complex rose water, candied melon and lemon basil notes. On the palate the wine is fresh and reminiscent of the crunch of pomegranates and cranberries. The mid-palate is creamy and generous with notes of ripe watermelon and pink grapefruit zest with just a hint of juniper spice that adds nobility. A line of ripe citrusy acidity drives the palate to a long vinous finish that lets all the near-saline minerality of the terroir shine through. Winemaking - The fruit is harvested at the peak of its freshness and fruitiness, avoiding dominating or dry tannins. Assessing each batch separately, we used a combination of skin soaking and direct pressing (for the Grenache and Shiraz) and saignee (for the Shiraz). The wine undergoes a slow cool fermentation in stainless tanks to preserve the fresh fruit character. On lees maturation enriches the texture."
