A thing of beauty, we are so proud to be rolling into our debut release clutching this bad boy!

In the glass it brings sour cherry and fresh raspberries up front, give it a swirl and you might find dark chocolate, soy sauce, boot polish, and a bit of baking spice ready to set your senses on fire. It's got soft tannins and bright acidity so pairs well with a wide range of food; we particularly love serving it with pizza, charcuterie, or peruvian grilled chicken.

Hand picked on the very sunny morning of 27th of March by a crew of long-suffering friends and family accompanied by 2 very cute dogs. A perfect season to begin growing grapes, we had half a hectare of perfect fruit with not a single berry lost to rot. 

In the winery, we removed the stems to leave whole berries of which we footstomped just under half to release enough juice to get things a bit sloppy. Within a few days, the natural yeasts had begun to take effect and fermentation was underway. A very gentle extraction was encouraged with regular hand plunging, followed by a short maceration on the skins.

The skins were basket-pressed on the 14th of April and the wine was put into seven beautiful old barrels to rest up until we bottled on 8th of October.
