These vines naturally produce low yields due to a combination of unique orientation, free drainage and high exposure. Together with this, the soil has a far greater prevalence of ironstone pebbles than any other part of the vineyard and delivers wine with great concentration and savoury tannic presence.
Always unique, the 2019 Ferrous opens on the savoury side with iron, clove, allspice, and lavender. Fruity and floral notes appear, displaying flavours of cranberry, orange zest, violets and cherry, while whole-bunch aromas add complexity. There is gentle power to the palate with an attractive combination of savoury flavours and purple fruits. The ultra-fine tannins offer a pleasingly dry, moreish spiciness, leading to a long and sustained finish of black cherry and lifted florals. While the wine can be enjoyed now, it demands cellaring to show its full potential.
