This wine was produced from a small and exceptionally rocky outcrop in the vineyard that sits next to our 21A block. A distinctly different wine to our 21A but equivalent in quality and presence, this wine demanded a single vineyard label of its own. The vines grow roots that penetrate deep into the rock producing small bunches and tiny berries leading to intense fruit flavours and distinctive tannin structures.
Layers of intense dark fruit fill the nose with bay leaf, oregano and bramble adding complexity. The palate is rich with layers of cocoa like tannins, a dark core of brooding red fruits and layers of brown spice notes from a hint of oak. This wine will be making a name for itself for many years to come.
