OBSERVATION. It’s at the heart of biodynamic farming. Watching changes in the vineyard and responding naturally to find the balance. It takes an almost obsessive commitment to the cause. The Latins spoke of the amator who expressed such devotion out of love, rather than for reward. Tending to these majestic old vines, that’s a notion we completely understand.

Colour

A bright, bold crimson.

Bouquet

A fragrant and beguiling combination of red fruits, spices and savoury notes. Find blackcurrant, plums, dark cherries, black pepper, musk and tobacco among them.

Palate

Loaded with fruit character, the lusciousness is balanced by plush and chewy tannins as well as spices and savoury characters. A wine of great depth, length and generosity.

Professional Reviews

Fresh aromas of blueberries, cherry pastry, wet stones, dark chocolate and violets. The palate has rich, concentrated flesh and abundant ripe dark berries that fill the mid-palate. Long, smooth and juicy finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
