A small production made by the winemaker Matt Campbell as a side project, his wines are precise and elegant.
Pale copper/salmon. Some classic Mourvèdre reduction on opening, with strawberry and red berry fruit taking over. A nice little whiff of apricot kernel and cherry stone, very pleasant. Background allspice scents and some orange rind. Barrel ferment and lees contact have softened the wine. It glides easily across the palate. Similar flavours as the nose suggests as the wine pulls through the mid palate with gentle acidity towards a dry, savoury finish.
Pretty delicious and dangerously drinkable!
