The life of the party, the instigator of frivolity, the undying entertainer. A modern-day jester gathers friends around regularly to eat and drink well, and much like their medieval predecessors, reminds us that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
Lively and light bodied with tart cherry meeting riper mulberry. Delicately laced tannins and crunchy, bright acidity give length and poise. Hints of sage, subtle white pepper, and ground cardamom to finish.
Fermented on skins for 8 days in 8 tonne potter fermenters and pumped over twice daily. Temperatures were kept cool (between 20 and 24˚C) to retain fruit vibrancy and ensure a soft tannin structure. The ferment was pressed off at approximately 1 Baume to finish in stainless steel tank before 6 months maturation in seasoned French and American Oak. Malolactic fermentation was completed by indigenous strains during this time. After barrel maturation, the wine was racked to stainless steel tank to preserve aromatics until bottling. The final wine is un-fined and received light filtration only.
