A 70/30% blend, the grapes from three vineyards and fermented separately; 15-20% whole bunches, the remainder destemmed and machine-sorted to remove shrivelled berries; cold soak 5 days, wild-fermented, matured in used French oak. Brightly coloured, it has strikingly savoury complexity with red and black fruits. 97 dozen made.
