100% skin contact, 50% stem contact, with 2 months on skins showing bright orange in the glass. Dried orange fruit notes and spices on the nose. Develops beautifully, building and adding dried straw and meadow flowers with moderate levels of gravelly tannins that linger on the back of the tongue. Sour-savoury finish.
