100% Merlot. Sourced from Magpie Springs farm in the Hope Valley, a sandy soiled site located at the top of a hill in close proximity to the ocean. The fruit is destemmed and saignéed, leaving a very concentrated skin-to-juice ratio. The juice ferments in an open top 2000 litre oak barrel and foot plunged once a day for three weeks. The wineis then pressed to seasoned French oak.
Anton’s Notes: The velvet warm of darkness, the comfort of a warm
hairy mountain man cuddling on in a cold winter storm, the richness of
black pudding, the beauty in blackness.
