The Blonde 2017 Magnum

Shiraz

This single vineyard lies in the Stone Well parish at 280m altitude and has a myriad of soil types including sandy loams, red clays and a limestone rock base — blonde in colour — running the length of the vineyard. It crops naturally at around 1.5 ton/acre, shows perfume, jube-like blue fruits, produces riper, plumper, sweeter fruited wine while still retaining acidity due to the higher limestone content of the soil. Numbered magnum; only 50 bottled.

Tasting Notes

In some years a very small percentage of viognier skins are included in the ferment for aroma, to soften tannin, set colour, add texture and more complexity with bottle age. Whole-bunch is utilised on a vintage to vintage basis while foot-treading, hand-plunging and pump-overs is usually the norm. 15-18 months maturation in smaller French oak of which up to a third can be new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under stelvin capsule.
