Our first harvest of Mataro crop (grafted back in 2020); our last pick for the 2022 season. We hand-picked a small amount from the best rows, choosing only the best bunches. Wild fermented on full skins in two open-top tubs for eight days, hand plunging twice daily. Pressed out with our much-loved basket press into five, 300L aged oak barrels for 11 months. Only 1,131 bottles made. Unfined/unfiltered, v low sulphur.
Blackberry leaf, plum, just-ripe red currant with lingering lift from natural acidity. Savoury and light-bodied, juiciness and spice.
The last one up; animating silhouettes in the candlelight.
