Biodynamic farming, ceramic eggs, natural fermentation, fruit all de-stemmed, Pete Fraser concentrating, a zephyr of autumn, a banjo string is plucked, someone runs a wet finger over the rim of a wine glass, a theremin wails.
Magnificent grenache feeling achingly pure, all skinsy, excellent tannin chew, exceptional length, memory imprinted on the taste buds, just-ripe red berries, spice, green herbs, ferrous minerality, a bit lip of fresh blood and something sweet earthy-salty. Superb scents and flavours conspire here, it feels fresh but deeply-flavoured at once. Shimmering transparency and mouth-watering acidity in tow. Here’s a high water mark. 96 points – Mike Bennie, The Winefront
