WINEGROWING

The vineyard belongs to the legendary David Trafford and is planted to a number of interesting varieties. The vines are planted as bush vines on an incredibly rocky soil in a harsh maritime influenced environment.

TASTING NOTE by Greg Sherwood MW

A 50/50 split between Touriga Nacional and Syrah, with the Syrah using 50% whole-bunches with two weeks’ skin contact. The wine was aged 15 months in old 500 litre barrels before bottling. This wine certainly has its own bold vinous personality and reveals a dark, deep damson plum colour and an equally deep, dark broody aromatic profile. Loaded with blue and black berry fruits, you can almost smell the sea as layers of saline black currant, kelp and piquant salty black liquorice are underpinned by a pronounced dusty, granitic, rocky minerality. Pithy mineral spice framed by dusty graphite tannins that flex a bit more muscle than either the Follow the Line or Thief in the Night blends. Drink from release over the next 8 – 10+ years
