TASTING NOTES

A unique English Red wine that displays a complex and intense array of black cherries, raspberries and bramble fruit, subtle toasty oak.

Intense, red fruit combines with smoky, vanilla oak and mild tobacco overtones on the nose. Red stone fruit notes of cherry & plum blend blackcurrant, strawberry & toasty oak to give a rich, but balanced weight on the palate and a mouth-watering long finish.

SCALE Dry

Fermented in small batches that were punched down to gently maximise colour, flavour, and structure extraction. The wine was then transferred to barrel for 100% malolactic conversion and were aged for nine months in barrel, the batches were then blended and left to settle for two weeks before bottling.

The wine has no fining or filtration to retain the delicate nuances of the fruit and oak. It demonstrates a forward primary fruit character synonymous with young vines that will develop in intensity and potential to age.
