Winemaker's Notes:

This artful, site-specific gamay interpretation introduces itself with a whisp of violets.  Additional tones of cherry, strawberry, cranberry and Turkish Delight are announced, with a steely undertone as the nose unfolds. Red berry and confectionary characters extend to the palate, enlivened by sassy acidity.

Robustly-ripe grape clusters (suger average 22.4° Brix) were hand-picked on the 8th of October from the north gamay block of the Malivoire Estate Vineyard.

After sorting, the larger (78%) share of the newly harvested grapes was destemmed, as the remaining 22 % was reserved in whole clusters. The fruit was first layered into a concrete tank. After primary fermentation, the wine was racked to mature (9-to-13-year-old) 300-Litre barrels. Having settled and aged for five-and-a-half months, the wine filled
88 cases in June 2022.

Enjoy now to 2026.
