Wild ferment, maturation in 500L French oak puncheons for 3 months. Unfined. Winemakers are Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela.

Daniel and Theo apparently sang to it while it matured in barrel. Coral pink. This is an energetic wine, with a cool dusky musk base, replete with raspberry crystals and light peach stone fruit inferences. Wonderfully textural and refreshing, this is a cut above.

Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
