The juice went into old French barriques, where it fermented wild and in its own time. Benign neglect then took over until it was racked off lees and bottled with a small amount SO2, but without fining or filtration, in January 2019. This edition spent a few months longer in barrel than previous years. It is bone dry yet supple and just so damn drinkable. A little more fruit driven but with a trademark savoury element and textural interest. Flavours of pomegranate and dried cherry and refreshing acidity, with heaps of texture and flavour.
