Vineyard Notes: This wine is a field blend of Grenache Noir, Monastrell, and Syrah from a single, sustainably farmed vineyard. The soil is comprised of calcareous river stones.
Winemaking Notes: The three varietals are cofermented, 100% whole cluster, in a 3000L unlined cement egg. Fermentation occurs with native yeasts. The wine is then aged for 8 months in 4th use French oak barrels, followed by 12 months additional aging in bottle. The wine is bottled unfiltered.
Tasting Notes: The nose is earthy and muddled with hints of blackberry and cherry luden with undernotes of forest floor, fungi, bay leaf, cand leather. The palate is juicy and lush with black fruits, currant, and fine grained tannins that lead to a light finish of clove and cinammon.
