Other Reviews….
The inaugural release, made from hand-picked fruit, whole clusters pressed to old oak, wild fermented and aged 9 months. It's a really good outcome. Cunchy citrusy flavours, passionfruit pith, pine needle and basil coolness are matched to a more textural palate. Plenty of acidity ensures a delicious drink right now. Drink by 2023.
