Tight, bright, minerally wine with texture and mouthfeel and an interesting hint of phenolic structure - like soft acidity and pear drop intensity. Built to age and gain complexity in bottle. We took a trip backwards in time to make a thoroughly modern wine. A wine that will age beautifully for at least the next ten years, a tribute hopefully to the age and concentration of the vines, as well as to low, very low interruptive winemaking, a natural wine in every sense and finally bottled totally naturally with no cold stabilization or fining and it is crystal clear, slightly golden in a good way, with a still lime green rim and how did I do that you ask? Well it's unfiltered, unfined just a Dirty Little Secret - naturally!

Winemaking

We've worked with wild yeasts and barrels etc. from the word go (yes, since 1994), low SO2 levels are the norm so naturally this "newfound" trend of natural winemaking caught my eye; especially the cloudy, unstable, technically dirty examples that vaunt their naturalness! Make it naturally, completely spontaneous ferment after extended soaking on skins and stalks before pressing, in barrels, straight on to malolactic fermentation and then only racked and a tiny addition of SO2. Back into beautiful old, natural 400L French barrels (6-10 years old) for a 5 month rest and natural clarification, then bottled unfiltered and unfined to comply with the "natural" rules and laws.
