A tiny production wine that is styled on the Northern Rhone model. The young vines are bunch thinned to only one bunch per shoot and the grapes picked late in May to fully ripen. The grapes are foot trodden with 100% whole bunches with around 5% Viognier included in the ferment. This is a soft, savoury, ripe tasting Syrah.

Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"From a record-breaking dry summer, this fruit was sourced from a hot pocket site on our Brookby Hill Vineyard in the Southern Valleys. Hand harvested off ‘first pick’, single cane vines, the crop was extremely light due to meticulous bunch thinning carried out to allow full maturity. The fruit was then co fermented with 5% viognier in open top fermenters with 30% whole clusters and traditionally foot stomped. Lightly pressed into 25% new and seasoned French oak barrels, the wine aged for 11 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Aromas of black peppercorn and charred meats combine with dried thyme and Herbes de Provence to create a botanical and savoury earthiness on the nose. The palate is in the leathery, earthy spectrum with blueberry and black fruit flavours shining through. This wine is bright and fresh with great concentration, focus and energy."

92/100 Jamie Goode, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"First vintage from young vines, picked at 23 Brix, with a bit of Viognier too. 100% whole bunch. Very perfumed and floral with sweet cherry fruit and a bit of pepper. Fine, fresh and elegant with some smashability."
