Product Description

In bottle for a year before release. Fermented in short, fat horizontal tanks and 100 days on lees. 24–48 hours on skins and whole-bunch pressed.RS 8.2 g/l, TA 8.8 g/l. 
Glorious aromas of clementine, lemon oil and lime but also something like sour honey. Tastes dryish but honeyed with orange and a light phenolic texture. Very, very good. Really grippy on the finish. Distinctive and such a complex interplay of structure, acid and aroma.
