    Hand harvested from 25yr old vines planted in devonian slate


    Whole bunches are foot stomped and ferment semi-carbonically for about one week. The wine is then pressed to oak barrels to finish fermentation on the full lees 


    No batonnage is performed and it is bottled, unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur

  • Tasting Notes

    Lots of strawberries, rhubarb and white peaches, vibrant acidity and playful finish on the palate. Colour-wise closer to a rose - technically closer to an orange wine. Intriguing and refreshing.
